    How Can I display a calcuation output as read only

    Asked by jcraparotta on March 12, 2017 at 01:10 PM

    I have a simple form to help cashiers summarized the cash collected.  The top of the form has inputs the bottom has the calculation of the currency by total of bills.  How do I lock the output field for the calculation summary?


    Thank you in advance,

    Hello! To set the Calculation Widget as read-only, click the WAND icon on the widget > three dots menu (...) > OPTIONS tab > tick RESULT FIELD IS READ ONLY > BACK > then SAVE.

    Then do these on all the Calculation Widgets you wish to be read-only.
