    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I need a field to store today's date and I don't want user to modify it. So, what can I do?

    Best regards,

    There are probably many ways to do this but perhaps the simplest would be to embed a copy of the form's full source into a web page and add a readonly="readonly" attribute to each input of the date field.

    Would you be needing assistance with this?
