Data type returned 

number

Originated in version

Description 

You assign the access privileges in the Custom Layout Privileges dialog box.

Returns:

0 if the custom layout privileges of the privilege set allow no access to Records via this layout

1 if the custom layout privileges of the privilege set allow view only access to Records via this layout. If the database is opened with read-only access, FileMaker Pro returns 1 even if the layout has read-write access privileges

Notes 

Get(LayoutAccess) returns information about record access privileges defined for only the current layout. It ignores current record access privileges for all other layouts. To fully check access through a layout, consider the return values of Get(LayoutAccess) and the Get(RecordAccess) function.

See Editing layouts privileges for more details about limiting access through layouts.

Example 1 

Returns 1 when the layout allows view-only access to records.
