We have a new requirement to disable all fields in InfoPath form based the dropdown control selection.

please help me out


There is no direct read-only rule. Meanwhile, you can achieve that by creating a format rule for each control you need to disable it as the following

  • Click on your dropdown control.
  • from the above ribbon > add rule > is equal to or based on your requirements > and select any option below formatting section.

enter image description here

  • Now set your field that you need to disable.
  • in the rule properties check disable this control.

  • unfortunately, you can't achieve that as bulk, you just can copy the rules for each control you need to disable. Note: if you are going to copy the rule you should change the field that you need to disable – Mohamed El-Qassas MVP Apr 29 '17 at 13:59
