I would like to display a field in a form so the user can see it, I would also like to ensure the field was read only and not hidden.

I have selected the relevant check marks to ensure this happens but the field will not show.

Only if I remove read only with the field show in the form.

Any ideas how I can achieve this?

Thank you.

It should work as is - please check if you have some show_if condition that doesn’t allow this or the form view does not have this column displayed.

Or, you could try changing the column type to Show, if it isn’t already.

Hi @Nick_Parsons1, I request you to have some initial value in the read only field’s definition or in the back end table of the field column…

Or you could set the Show_If condition to TRUE

@Bharath_S_Chordia Hi, I just tried that but it changed the way my form worked.

Instead of just showing the filed it hid all other fields and then revealed them after every question was answered in the form 1 by 1.

It is the form in which I would like a user to see the field result but not be able to edit it?
