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.
This is a re-post of a comment on How to Perform Form Calculation Using a Widget

You can hide the Form Calculation if you want by ticking Hide field
Here is how:
Go to your Form Calculation Widget and click properties then ADVANCED
click Hide field to make your Form Calculation hide .
I hope this information helps you.

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.
