We currently have a field (Job Appplying for) in our form found here: http://www.ugsc.ca/careers_application.html?positionApplying14=CAD%20Technician%20GP
That we pre-populate for the user via a link (see above) - based on the link they click, it prepopulates the "job applying for" field.
We have found that some users are then changing this field to something else, is there a way for us to populate this field for the user (as we are currently) but then locking it as read-only once it is filled in? Or another suggestion for this?

You can set the Read-Only property of the field to ON and the pre-population process will still work.
Hope this help. Let us know if this did not work for you.

HI there,Thank you for your response.I had tried this before submitting the question however it seems that then the info in the link did not populate in the form... I changed it back since it was not allowing the form to be prepopulated. Any thoughts?Thanks,Shirley

It was working on the link I provided.
As you can see the field Position Applying for is a Read-Only field, and it has a default value.
Are you saying that your form is not having similar output?
Can you share to us the URL of the pre-populated URL. we will check.
