Uneditable Text

The Uneditable text control is used to display text to the user that they are not allowed to edit. This can be due to the value being locked because of its state or the user lacking permission to edit it. This control ensures that the displayed text remains static and unmodifiable.

If you have a control whose editability depends on other controls on the page, consider configuring an Enabled JavaScript on the control instead.

Choosing the right control:

  1. Uneditable text control:

    • Use this control when you need to display text that the user is not allowed to edit.
    • Ideal for showing locked or read-only information, or when the user lacks permission to modify the content.
  2. Info text control:

    • Use this control when you want to display text that depends on the values of other controls on the page.
    • Use it to explain the consequences of the user's choices based on their interactions with other elements.
  3. Hidden control:

    • Use this control when you need to include values that are not visible to the end user.
    • It allows you to provide data or text that can be referenced by other controls.
