I'm using QGis 2.14.12 Essen on Windows 7 Professional.
I want to set up a project that includes a feature class which has a non-editable° creation_date field and a non-editable UUID field. I have found a way to do it but it doesn't work the way I expect it to. I was able to recreate the problem on a colleague's computer.
Here's the problem:
I created a new .shp. In the layer settings, I've created a field "creation_date" (field type "date") which has the element setting° "date/time" and a UUID field (field type "Text/string", length 50) which is "UUID Generator"°. If I tick the box "editable"° in each dialogue, everything works just fine when creating new features.
If I untick the box "editable", the pop-up upon creation of a feature displays the correct date and it's not editable. Same for the UUID. Upon saving, neither of the entries show up in the attribute table. I can see them via the identify tool, though.
Can you reproduce this problem, is this a bug or am I making some mistake?
(I'm using the German version, so I'm not sure if I translated the words (marked with °) correctly. I hope you know which buttons/settings I'm talking about. Please help me out here to make the question more understandable.)
If I open the .dbf in Excel, the editable columns has data, but not the non-editable.
Removing layer from Project and adding it again, does not Show the Information in the Attribute table and it stops the Information from being available in the identify tool.
