    Not possible to set Calculation widget fields to Read Only mode

    Asked by hilltopkennels on August 07, 2015 at 04:16 PM

    I'm having trouble setting some of my fields to read only. Other fields are set read only fine. The fields I'm having trouble with are;

    #input_126 {DogSharingDiscount}

    #input_134 {catSharing}

    #input_239 {catHeating}


    Hope you can help!


    Many thanks

    It looks like there is a bug, the Read Only mode is working properly only on a single Calculation widget field per form (other Calculation widget fields are editable). A bug report ticket has been sent to our Development Team.

    In the meantime, you can output your conditional calculation results to the Read-only Text Box fields. It should work as expected.

    We will let you know when we have any updates on this.

    That's great, thanks for the fix. I've redesigned the booking form to use the text fields instead which works fine.
