{WorkAround}CRM 2013:Locking Read-only users from Form ribbon click

We wanted to restrict read only users on Form ribbon click. First we tried to restrict using form type but interestingly not in all cases where form comes read-only, form type was matching to read only in CRM 2013. Hence,We used following unsupported script in all ribbon buttons which we did not

want to allow Read-only users to use:

//Show error for read-only users
  if($(‘#titlefooter_statuscontrol’) != null)
      if ($(‘#titlefooter_statuscontrol’).text() == “Read only”)
      alert(“You do not have permission to peform this operation.”);


Hope it helps!
