    display current date on form

    Asked by FIT_forms on February 11, 2016 at 06:30 AM


    Is it possible to show the current date on the form, without the user being able to modify it?

    The add-on widgets appear to allow the user to update the date.

    Thank you.

    It is possible to current date on the form by choosing Current Date option from Default date property.

    Since you do want the user to change the field, you may mark the field as Read Only from the field properties.

    This option will not allow to the user to change the date being displayed on the form.

    Hope this information helps!
