Symptoms

We have Created a new calculated field in the Action BC which is a "Contact Read Only Flag" which is set for Activities of a certain type and status.

Then, in the "Contact" BC, we have created a new user property with the following properties:

Name: Parent Read Only Field
Value: Action.RCRM Contact Read Only Flag

When in an Activity applet and setting the type and status such that the read only flag is set, it is not possible to add a new Contact in the MVG applet, but this ONLY happens AFTER the activity record has been saved. This is not very usable to the users and it is also different to the way that this functionality behaves if the field is not an MVG. Is there any way that we can get this user property to work immediately so that the user does not have to save to have a read only MVG?
