I have a save & close button on an infopath 2007 form, but i would like to create a rule on it to be disabled if the current user only has read only access to the sharepoint site, is this possible without code?

If current user has read only access means that user cannot edit or add any items. Then why you need to set rule for your form?

Hi, because they can still open the form and then click on the save and close button which brings up an error. If i can determine on open if they only have readonly access then i can disable the button. – Shane Apr 17 '13 at 8:00
Hey how they can open edit form? Edit Item ribbon will be disabled for these users. will they open by giving the edit item url in browser directly? If so they will be redirected to access denied page. – suren Apr 17 '13 at 8:09
They have readonly access to the sharepoint site, from there they can open existing infopath forms, once in the form the edit button can be pressed, this is a button on the form itself but of course if the then save & close via a button on the form they get the error – Shane Apr 18 '13 at 1:30
How users can open infopath forms from site? – suren Apr 18 '13 at 10:10
