Have you tried adding SPContext.GetContext(this.Context).FormContext.FormMode = SPControlMode.Display; inside CreateChildControls(){ }?

  • I created my Form on SharePoint Designer, I have no code behind to edit. Another idea? May 30, 2013 at 5:36

Try this.

<PageFieldAverageRatingFieldControl:AverageRatingFieldControl FieldName="5a14d1ab-1513-48c7-97b3-657a5ba6c742" runat="server" ControlMode="Edit">
