in the HtmlAttributes , of a TextBox, or DrowDownList etc it seems there is no way to put readonly to false, at least, there is any effect: the field remains always readonly, once the readonly attribute is present, even if is readonly = false;

@(Html.Kendo().TextBoxFor(m=>m.ToitTN).HtmlAttributes(new { @readonly = false })) 
that code will display a readonly textbox. no matter if the readonly is false...

Hello, Serge,

Thank you for sharing your observations. Indeed, you have observed the default behavior of the readonly attribute that comes from JavaScript, by default. More information on the exact logic that it applies could be found here:

https://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_input_readonly.asp

Note that the exact same behavior will be observed in a plain HTML input (outside of the scope of the Telerik UI products).

I have followed up with further information in another thread of yours:

Feel free to reach out to me if there is anything else I can help with.
