We are trying too make a form read only (in form folder access) to specific users but they can still write in the data form.

According to oracle documentation a user can edit a read only form if that user have access to the members present in that data form.

Is there any work around i can restrict forms only regard less of a member access.

    Read only access on form - this is not "read" only, this just means that the user cannot edit the form (that's there is a Write access on form, if you give Write access, an interactive user can edit the form)

    To make a form read only, there is an option in display where you can make the form read only for all users, this will be applied to all users.

    There is a [Read only] option in the data form itself. By checking that it makes the data form red only to everyone.

    On access, as specified by CK  and User1211, read access (on form) will not make form read only however if you want to make it read-only only for some users then you may consider following options:

    1. Identify a member in a form (especially in POV) which you can assign those users a read access. But with this, those users will not be able to write / input data for that member (in any other forms).

    2. Create a duplicate form and make it read-only.

        With this there could be some other stuff that you may have to consider as how will you handle if this form is in a Task List and so on.

    Hope this helps.
