Readonly options - Jsonforms version compatibility with material ui v4

Hi Team,

“options”: {
“readonly”: true

This is not working with version 2.5.1. Please find the following details.

@jsonforms/core”: “^2.5.1”,
@jsonforms/material-renderers”: “^2.5.1”,
@jsonforms/react”: “^2.5.1”,
@material-ui/core”: “^4.9.14”,
@material-ui/icons”: “^4.9.1”,
@material-ui/lab”: “^4.0.0-alpha.53”,

These are all the dependencies version.

Which compatible jsonforms version supports “readonly” along with mentioned material-ui versions?

Below are the schemas.

export const testUiSchema = {
type: ‘VerticalLayout’,
elements: [
type: ‘Group’,
elements: [
type: ‘Control’,
scope: ‘#/properties/field_1’,
options: {
readonly: true,

export const testSchema = {
title: ‘test entity 001’,
type: ‘object’,
properties: {
field_1: {
title: ‘Field 1’,
type: ‘string’,
required: ,


Hi @Suseendhiran,

readonly on single controls is supported since 3.0.0-alpha.0. We switched from Material Ui v4 to v5 with v3.0.0-alpha.3. So it seems that 3.0.0-alpha.0, 3.0.0-alpha.1 and 3.0.0-alpha.2 should work for you.

Thanks for your response @sdirix , I did update all the packages to the latest version. readonly options is working now.

But still I’m facing issue with Group Custom layout readonly options.

I have created custom layout for “Group” type, When I add the option readonly:true, it is not becoming effective in this custom layout, means fields inside this group custom layout not becoming disabled, even though I have added <MaterialLayoutRenderer {…layoutProps} />.

Below is my custom layout renderer code. I have added this in jsonforms renderer’s list, I could collapse the Group section, but readonly options is not working,

With default Group renderer, readonly options is working fine.

import React from ‘react’;
import { rankWith, RendererProps, uiTypeIs } from ‘@jsonforms/core’;
import {
} from ‘@jsonforms/material-renderers’;
import { withJsonFormsLayoutProps } from ‘@jsonforms/react’;
import { ExpandMore } from ‘@mui/icons-material’;
import {
} from ‘@mui/material’;

interface MyGroupRendererProps extends RendererProps {
uischema: any;
// Replace ‘any’ with the appropriate type for your uischema

const MyGroupRenderer: React.FC = (props) => {
const { path, visible, renderers, schema, uischema } = props;
const layoutProps: MaterialLayoutRendererProps = {
elements: uischema.elements,
schema: schema,
path: path,
direction: ‘column’,
visible: visible,
uischema: uischema,
renderers: renderers,

return (

<AccordionSummary expandIcon={}>

<MaterialLayoutRenderer {…layoutProps} />


export const groupCollapsibleRendererRegistration = {
tester: rankWith(1000, uiTypeIs(‘Group’)),
renderer: withJsonFormsLayoutProps(MyGroupRenderer),

Reference: Custom Layouts - JSON Forms

Kindly let me know, whether this is the expected behavior or what else i can do to disable fields inside group custom layout renderer.

It seems like you are not handing over the enabled prop to the MaterialLayoutRenderer. Therefore the children will not see that their parent was disabled.
