Read Only

Business Background

Use the Read Only function so users can view an input field but not make edits. Use the Read Only option for elements such as Text, Email, Area, Number, Date, Multi-Select, and Dropdown. This option allows the user only to view text; they cannot make any changes, such as delete or edit text.

  1. Select the Read Only checkbox. The field will not be editable.

The Read only option is similar to the disable option. There are elements with the disable option only, such as the button element and don’t have the read-only option. The user cannot type any text in the field. The main difference is the UI, and the disable option has greyed-out text. See the below example of disable and read-only:
