I have some troubles with EditForm in Sharepoint. In SPD 2010 i have created External Type and defined CRUD method for him. I want to show in Disp form all item fields, but in Create and Edit form only fields subset, i.e. some fields "ReadOnly".

When i was creating "Create" and "Edit" methods in SPD 2010 operation constructor, i choose only those fields that really required.

When i open "NewItem" from in browser in Create from that's work, i see only subset fields, but in "Edit" from i see all fields.

What's wrong, please help. I need to show subset fields in EditForm. It will be great if i could do this in SPD.

It's simple, If you want to hide some fields in UpdaterForm, but to show them in DispForm, you should mark this fields as readOnly in SPECIFIC finder method. It's work.
