    I have added a calcualtion based on two other entry fields using the calulation wizard. Is there a way of making the results in this calculation field display only?

    If I understood correctly you want to make the Form Calculation widget read-only. This can be done inside of the widget settings. Please check the following screencast.

    Hi Darrell,

    I can replicate this problem through the mobile forms app. It is ignoring the read-only properties in both fill out form and kiosk mode.

    I have escalated this thread to our backend team for review. Once we have an update, you will be notified here. In the meantime, you may consider hiding the calculations.
