What i meant is that the text you now have in your uneditable text field you will put in the caption of the editable field.
And the editable part of this new field you will "hide" by puting the reverve property as close as possible to the width property of the entire field.
See the attach file.
Thanks for your reply,
There are a few things I don't understand for your work around. First, when you say "...put your text in the caption area", do you mean to say put it in the tool tip caption box? Next, how do you "make the text input area width = 0".
I have an uneditable text field. Is there any way to get a tooltip to show up over it?
The reason I am needing this is because the user fills in the field in an earlier instance of the field, and it's set to global. The same field is presented later in the form, but this global field is marked Protected. I'd like to tell the user where he needs to go in the form in order to change the value of the field.
