Not sure if I'm doing this the wrong way, or if there is a bug in the control, but I can't seem to set the enabled or readonly property to disable text entry for a time.  Is there something I'm doing wrong or a workaround?

I tried
Element.Enabled = false;
Element.TextBoxItem.Enabled = false;
Element.TextBoxItem.ReadOnly = true;
Element.TextBoxItem.HostedControl.Enabled = false;

None seemed to work.

Hello Jeff Sheldon,

If you are using the RadTextBox control, you should set the Enabled or ReadOnly properties directly:
this.radTextBox1.Enabled = false;  
// or  
this.radTextBox1.ReadOnly = true

If you scenario regards RadTextBoxElement , currently, we have an issue with disabling the text entry when setting the Enabled property. However, when you set this.radTextBox1.TextBoxElement.TextBoxItem.ReadOnly = true you should not be able to enter any text. Of course this is only a property for the read-only behavior, so your RadTextBoxElement will still look enabled.

If you want your RadTextBoxElement to look disabled (and dimmed) with no possibility of entering text, please consider using the following code snippet:
this.radTextBox1.TextBoxElement.TextBoxItem.HostedControl.Enabled = false

If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

Best wishes,
