Lock fields after pop up boxes have been answered

Avatar

Level 2

I have a form which has messageBoxes that pop up when the form is opened, and the user fills out the questions in these boxes, which then uses the data to fill out the form for them.  Is there a way to lock the form once those boxes have been used so they are left with an uneditable PDF which they can then print?
