Open documents only in readonly

Question asked by nitinsa on Feb 20, 2015
So I have this requirement that the document should be open as editable or readonly depending upon from where the user is accessing it.

SO the same user accessing from one place can edit the document and the same user from another place should only see the document in the readonly mode. Therefore I cannot use the site permissions.

So I am using window.open(webdav URL) to open the document when the user should not edit the document and activeX object edit document where user can save it into alfresco.

But only Internet Explorer is allowing the user to save the document with window.open () method.

Can someone please let me know what is the way to show the document to user so that they cannot save it back without using the manage space user permission?

Thanks,
Nitin
