    Hi, is there any way to make the calculation field "view only"? At the moment the customer can change the calculated field manually by clicking inside it and entering a different number, and thereby overriding the calcualtion. I have solved the issue by using the conditional logic calculation which uses a text-field which allowes for a "read only" option in "advanced options". Would still be nice to have this option in the Widget.

    Go to your Form Calculation Widget and click properties then ADVANCED

    click Hide field to  make your Form Calculation hide .

    Ok, thank you for the suggestion. I want the calculation to be visible, but not editable for the viewer. I have solved the issue by using the conditional logic calculation which uses a text-field that allows for a "read only" option in "advanced options". Would be nice to have this option in the Widget too - I don't think I am the only one using it to show a calculation that I don't want to have overwritten:)

    The Form Calculation widget already has read-Only option. You can find this option inside of the Widget Settings.
