I have custom object called candidate. I have created field name called first name which is read-only in the page layout. Once a record is created with first name field populated I am able to edit that field. Why I am able to edit (I mean getting pencil icon). Can anyone suggest me for this issue?


Are you doing this as a system admin?

System Admin profile has the option "Edit Read Only Fields" under "Administrative Permissions" and this means that profile is always able to edit read only fields.

Try logging in as a user with a different profile.
