    How to make "Form Calculation" widget read only?

    Asked by CTec on June 08, 2017 at 06:28 AM


    I'm trying to make an output/calculated field "Read only". In version 4 of Jotform the option of making a field "Read only" seems to have disappeared along with the right-click option to choose field properties.

    Am I missing something?

    Hi, click on the field you want to make "Read Only", then click on settings button.



    Then a property menu will show up from the right side of the screen, then click on advanced column.


    Scroll down and you will see read only button.


    I hope this helps.
