Make a Field Read-Only

Making a form input field read-only means it cannot be modified, however, a user can tab to it, highlight it, and copy the text from it. A form will still submit an input field that is read-only.

To make a field read-only in WS Form, follow these simple steps:

  1. Click the settings icon on the field you want to make read-only.WS Form - Field Settings Icon
  2. Click the ‘Advanced’ tab in the sidebar.WS Form - Field Settings - Advanced Tab
  3. Under the ‘Restrictions’ section check the ‘Read Only’ checkbox.WS Form - Field Settings - Advanced Tab - Read Only
  4. Click ‘Save & Close’.

Note that the ‘Read Only’ checkbox is only available on field types that support that feature. Also, if you have a field set as ‘Required’ this option will not appear, so ensure that setting is unchecked if you want to change a field to be read-only.
