Is there a way to disable user modeling

is it possible to disable and re-enable user modeling in modeler ?

Hi @Hauw_Ric,

The question is often asked here in the forum. You can, e.g., refer to this solution to switch between the Modeler and the Viewer.

If you don’t know about the Viewer before, please have a look at this example.

thanks for the reply
i already try solution from this thread
there was an error

Module not found: Can't resolve 'lodash/collection/forEach'

this is what i try
ReadOnly.js

'use strict';
var forEach = require('lodash/collection/forEach');
var HIGH_PRIORITY = 10001;
.....

index.js

import ReadOnly from './ReadOnly';

export default {
  __init__: [ 'readOnly' ],
  customRules: [ 'type', ReadOnly ]
};

and then import it to my main file

import Read from "./Read/ReadOnly.js";

my file have same structure like this thread

is lodash installed in your project?

Note: We also offer a tinier lib which also offers forEach functionality: min-dash

yes i can find lodash folder inside node_modules
i tried using import and still module not found

import forEach from 'lodash/collection/forEach';

Can you maybe share your complete setup/project? It’s hard to reproduce from outside…

Oftentimes removing the node_modules completely and npm install again can do the trick.

Also, have a look at this.

thanks i already solve my problem
by remove node and npm install again then change

var forEach = require('lodash/forEach');

but there was an error

Error: No provider for "readOnly" (Resolving: readOnly)

after use this command from solution

modeler.get('readOnly').readOnly(true);

Your error comes from the fact, the code you posted is not correctly exposing the module, you’ll have to

// ./read-only/index.js

import ReadOnly from './ReadOnly';

export default {
  __init__: [ 'readOnly' ],
  readOnly: [ 'type', ReadOnly ]
};

// ./app.js
import readOnlyModule from "./read-only"; // location to  your module 

var modeler = new BpmnModeler({
  container: '#js-canvas',
  keyboard: {
    bindTo: document
  },
  additionalModules: [
    readOnlyModule
  ]
});

modeler.get('readOnly').readOnly(true);

thanks it works and I commented on some code from ReadOnly.js

    // ignoreWhenReadOnly(editorActions._actions, 'undo');
    // ignoreWhenReadOnly(editorActions._actions, 'redo');
    // ignoreWhenReadOnly(editorActions._actions, 'copy');
    // ignoreWhenReadOnly(editorActions._actions, 'paste');
    // ignoreWhenReadOnly(editorActions._actions, 'removeSelection');
    // ignoreWhenReadOnly(editorActions._actions, 'spaceTool');
    // ignoreWhenReadOnly(editorActions._actions, 'lassoTool');
    // ignoreWhenReadOnly(editorActions._actions, 'globalConnectTool');
    // ignoreWhenReadOnly(editorActions._actions, 'distributeElements');
    // ignoreWhenReadOnly(editorActions._actions, 'alignElements');
    // ignoreWhenReadOnly(editorActions._actions, 'directEditing');

because there was an error undo,redo,… already registered

The code from the topic you mentioned doesn’t work anymore. I had to fix it in bpmn-js-token-simulation.

Have a look: https://github.com/bpmn-io/bpmn-js-token-simulation/commit/273ce65136ab633cbc0fe366ad376089939be541
