I need to make the field Date read only :

enter image description here

Any ideas?

  1. Right click on Date field
  2. Click Tex Box Propetries
  3. Click on Display tab
  4. Check Read-only
  5. Click OK

This is for text box


This is for Date and DateAndTime

  1. Right click on Date field
  2. Rules > Manage rules
  3. New Rule - Formatting
  4. Condition Date is blank/is not blank
  5. Disable this control


  • it's available for text box and not for data field. I try it – Imen Turki Oct 7 '14 at 14:06

you can make it read only in the properties of that field or you can create a rule that will set the value and disable the control.
