    How do I make a drop-down combo box read only or uneditable in a report? I
    don't see a readOnly property and I don't think disabled is the right one.

    Um, everything is read only in a report. If you meant to say "form" then
    you can use a combination of Enabled and Locked.

    Enabled = No + Locked = No
    Will produce a read only control that is grayed out and cannot receive
    focus.

    Enabled = Yes + Locked = Yes
    Will produce a read only control that is not grayed out and which can
    receive focus.

    Enabled = No + Locked = Yes
    Will produce a normal looking control that is both read only and unable to
    receive focus.

    Sorry haha,

    I meant to say Data Access Page. In the DAP I don't see an enabled or
    locked field.

    Thanks,
    Matt

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
