Feature creation is disabled for all layers. Why?

I have an extensively developed Javascript api application that incorporates popups, nav tools, identify tool, measure etc. I am trying to incorporate the 'Default Editing Widget' into this application.  Everything came together well except my template picker pane displays the message "Feature creation is disabled for all layers".

I would normally look to my Feature service to try and find problems there first.  However, before I tried incorporating the widget code into my developed application I added my feature service to the basic source code as provided in the samples on the ArcGIS javascript site and created an application with just editing functionality and it works perfectly so I know there is nothing wrong with my feature service.

What could be the problem causing feature creation to be disabled?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
