Make readonly property editable in CMS



our customer needs to edit a value of a property that is readonly. So i wanted to (temporarily) make this property editable again via CMS.
But i don't find the option. In Code it is made readonly with [Editable(false)]

You can't do that. ReadOnly setting is not stored in the database (tblPropertyDefinition table).

Where is it stored then? How you can make a property that is [Editable(false)] editable again?
I noticed that i can't even change it i code, it stays readonly. Edit: Now it works, maybe there was another reason why it was readonly(language,project).
But would be good if we could change it in CMS

It's dojo magic. Fetched at runtime. You need to make code changes to make it editable again.

Is your property decorated with the ReadOnly attribute? Or any other custom attribute that inherits from IMetadataAware and sets metadata.IsReadOnly to true?
