    Is there a way to block certain cells of an Input Table from any entry by the form user? There are some cells in a table where I prefer to just block the user from typing in anything. My current workaround is for the cell to have no effect on the table but I would rather the form user cannot type anything in those cells at all.

    We can hide those cells or grey out those cells using CSS.

    Would that work?

    If that will work, please share the form URL and the cells that you want to hide.

    That would work as long as the user cannot input anything into the cell.

    Hi there,

    Kindly inject the following CSS to block/disable the two cells in the "Extra Battery for Air Particulate Monitor ($16 ea)" row.

    input#input_7_15_1, input#input_7_15_2  {  display: none;}

    I've created a short video to show you how you can find these cell ids. You can add them in the above code by separating them using Comma.

    The video above is created using a clone of your form.
