How to set fields to read only in Behaviours

I am trying to make a few custom fields read-only based on if a date field was populated. The basic situation is: If the approval date is populated, then a few fields are to become read-only. The approval can be returned, so if that is true, then the custom fields are to be read-write again. If the issue is approved again, then check to make sure the approval is after the returned data to make the custom fields read-only again. Any help would be great.

Below is an example of just making the custom fields read-only, but many things could be wrong. Thanks!

def ApproveDate = getFieldByName("Approve Date")
Date ApproveDateValue = (Date) ApproveDate.getValue()

def ReturnDate = getFieldByName("Return Date")
Date ReturnDateValue = (Date) ReturnDate.getValue()

def cf1 = getFieldByName("CustomField1")
def cf2 = getFieldByName("CustomField2")

if (ApproveDateValue != null || (ReturndateValue !=null && ApproveDateValue>ReturnDateValue))

FormField ApproveDate = getFieldByName("Approve Date")
def ApproveDateValue = (Date) ApproveDate.getValue()

FormField ReturnDate = getFieldByName("Return Date")
def ReturnDateValue = (Date) ReturnDate.getValue()

FormField cf1 = getFieldByName("CustomField1")
FormField cf2 = getFieldByName("CustomField2")

if (ApproveDateValue != null || ( ReturnDateValue !=null && ApproveDateValue > ReturnDateValue)) {
// Make sure to make the fields read-write if condition evaluates as false as behaviour loads every time the field changes .
else {

Thanks Subrat!

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
