    I have an AutoComplete that is context dependent on other fields of the View screen.  For example, if a work order number is null, the autocomplete should function normally, however, if the workorder is present, then the autocomplete should not accept any changes because the value is then dictated by the work order and would only change if the work order changed.  I don't want to make the field read-only because then it won't post it's data to the server.  That would make things complicated and I adore simple.

    I don't find an onBeforeChange event for the widget... is it possible to hook one up, and if so how?  If not, please suggest a solution.

    Hello Richard,

    An input element with readonly attribute will be posted to the server (it will be successful). Based on this I would suggest you make the widget readonly when you do not want to allow any modifications. Use the readonly method for that task
