When the Display Only property is enabled, users cannot change the text in an editable control. If the property is not enabled, users can change the text.


In a painter

To specify that text is display only:

  • Select the Display Only check box on the General page of the control's Properties view.

In scripts

The DisplayOnly property takes a boolean value. The following example specifies that text in a MultiLineEdit control cannot be changed:

mle_1.DisplayOnly = TRUE
