Dynamically setting fields to be Read-Only in a Visualforce page using a Custom Controller

I would ike to dynamically set fields to be read-only (based on another field value) in a Visualforce page using a Custom Controller.

 

Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this?

Hi...

 

Use 'disabled' attribute with ur  component..

 

<apex:inputtext value="{!inp1}" disabled="{!flag}"/>

<apex:inputtext value="{!inp2}" >

<apex:actionsupport event="onchange" action="{!settingflag}"/>

</apex:inputtext>

 

In ur controller set ur flag value

Hi,

 

Do you know if this works for a <apex:inputField component?

This property (Disabled) is not an attribute of the <apex:inputField component>.   Does anybody have any idea on how to make fields read-only during run-time?

Hi,

 

How do you covert a PickList or Lookup to a InputText (from a InputField) and still retain the functionality?   Does anyone have any examples?

 

Thanks.

What you can do is have two fields, and input and an output field that are bound to the same variable/object. You can then use the rendered tag on these to show and hide one field at a time.
