Preventing User from Adding Text into a Text Box

I have a situation where I want to prevent the user from entering text into a Text box after they have clicked on a button.



I have looked at all the properties and can't find any way to do this. I don't want the field to be "Hidden" or "Invisible". I just want to lock it so nothing can be typed in!



Thank you in advance for any ideas you can share.

put this code on the button click event as the last line of code



fieldname.access = "readOnly"

additionally, if you don't want the field to be in the tab order, set the access property to be "protected".
