    Hi,


    I aw the other fields have the option of "read only" but I don't see the option for a form calculation field. Is there a way to turn this on?


    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, there is no option of "read only" for the Form Calculation Widget.
    However, you can hide the calculation widget

    and pass its value to a new Short text or number field which has an option to "read only".

    We use the Update/Calculate field to pass the value of the Form Calculation to the desired text input.

    Here is a sample screen cast.
