    Yes, that is possible, you can set that text field as Read-Only and use its value normally. To do that please follow:

    1. Click on gear box on textbox field:

    2. In Preferences page choose Advanced

    And switch 'Read Only' option on.

    That way, your field is read-only, nobody can change it, but you can show values, use them in calculations etc.

    Hope it helps.

    Please let us know if we can be of any additional assistance.

    Thank you!
