Can you provide more details? Are you saying that when a user enters a value in a field and commits it, you want the field to become read-only? If so, what happens if the user makes a mistake and wants to edit it?
I have a form that I want to populate certain field then email said form to my customer and have them complete the balance of the form and send back to me
I want the fields that I populated to be read only when they are emailed to the customer
I am building the form in Adobe pro XI
I believe I can accomplish this by adding a java script to execute on mouse exit ( or onFocus / onBlur, although i don't really know how they work either) but I am new to all this
Here's a link to a sample form that allows you to lock (set to read-only) certain fields by entering a password after clicking a button: https://workspaces.acrobat.com/?d=V6sp4ET*IvPDMfzFDwgYTw
