Disable Combo Box Upload Images   Link   Email

Hi Ravi here from Durban, South Africa.

I have a form with three Combo Boxes. I would like to disable all Combo Boxes after the form has been completed and saved.

Thank you.

Perhaps. . .
   ComboBox.Visible=False    or
   isLocked=True                  and/or
   cover with a rectangle?

Personally I don't care for the .Visible option Greg.  If that is set you can't view the information in a completed record because it will be hidden.

I would suggest the .Enabled or the .Locked properties based on the value of another field.  Such as an IsPaid or something similar.

See the Disallow Editing Data video for additional considerations.

Thank you Gregory, thank you Scott.

I will watch the Video "Disallow Editing Data".

Kind regards

Thank you, Scott. Your keen observation is well understood. Perhaps, if there is some real need to indicate the locked state of the ComboBox a BackColor change or BorderColor change would be in order as well - or maybe even the appearance of a visible label caption.
