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:
- Click the settings icon on the field you want to make read-only.
- Click the ‘Advanced’ tab in the sidebar.
- Under the ‘Restrictions’ section check the ‘Read Only’ checkbox.
- 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.
