    Read-Only Text

    Asked by rhein on May 08, 2013 at 12:32 PM


    I have a question regarding the function conditions.


    There is an dropdown of many articels: A,B,C,D,E,F

    When i select as example A, a new field should show up with a text I deposited to the A. For each Articel i will deposit a diffrent text. The user should not be able to change this text.


    Is there a solution?

    If the text will not be editable, you can accomplish this by using Free Text (HTML) under the Power tools tab


    Here is the demo form.

    Hi, you might also want to know that a regular textbox have a "Read-Only" property. So, you can assign a default value to it and have it un-editable by setting it to Read-Only.



    Hope this help also.
