CHAPTER 4: More About Privileges
What happens to status bar buttons, like delete record, if the user does not have access to delete records. Is it grayed out, does it just not work, is there a notification?
I had to manually give this a try because I rarely use the FileMaker 10 status bar and even more rarely work with a database in a mode other than full access. What I found out is that the buttons are grayed out and un-clickable.
Even more weird, you can customize the status bar in Read Only access. The icons become full viewable (not gray) and you can add icons to the status bar that you don’t have access to engage. Once you save your toolbar settings, the buttons will gray out again.
