Hey,

I have set my TextField to ReadOnly but the RadPdfViewer doesnt react to it. Im getting a pdf File that im importing using the telerik PdfFormatProvider after that im trying to set some of the fields to readOnly like this: 

if (formField is TextBoxField textBox)
{
	if (field is not null)
	{
	
		textBox.Value = field.ViewValue(viewMode);
		if (field.VarType != 0)
			formField.IsReadOnly = true;
			
	}
}

 

Im sure its setting it because if i export it to a pdf the fields are set to ReadOnly but not in the Telerik PdfViewer

 

Thanks

Dominik

Hello Dominik,

This is a known issue with the IsReadOnly setting of the FormField objects. You can track it in our feedback portal.

To work this around, you can flatten the form fields as described in the help documentation. I hope that helps.

Is there a way to reverse it? So its a field again?

No, flattening a form field will convert it to a standard element. If you want to unflatten it, you can try to remove the text element and insert a new form field. Can you tell me why would you need to change the element to field again?

The User can fill a field with data from a database and that field has a binding to that database. I wanted to make it readonly if there is a binding. If the user then decides to remove that binding the readonly should be false so he can type in it agian.

That why i asked if i can unflatten it. But if there is no way then I have a different idea.

Thank you for sharing why you need to change this back to field. The item status is already change to In Development, so if everything goes smoothly this should be fixed soon and it should be available with the next official release.
