I have a field named Assigned To inside my Create and Edit list forms. And i am using SPUtility library link to disable and enable certain fields. now the Assigned To field can be assigned to a Person or to a Group, as follow:-

enter image description here

And i am using this SPUtility method to make the AssingedTo field as read only inside the Create/Edit list forms if the item status = closed as follow:-

var internalStatusField = SPUtility.GetSPFieldByInternalName('InternalStatus').GetValue();

if(internalStatusField === "Closed")



now the problem i am facing is that if the AssignedTo field is assigned to a group then when i make it as read only , i will get empty field as follow, instead of showing the group name:-

enter image description here

but if the AssignedTo field contain a user, then the username will be show correctly in a read-only field as follow:-

enter image description here

so can anyone adivce why making a person or group read only using SPUtility will show empty field in-case the field is assigned to a group ??


Hint. I am testing this using IE 11. now when i try to do the test using Firefox i will always get empty field even when i am assigning the field to a username..
