Change read-only attribute of edit control programmatically.
Posted on 2002-06-02
I have an application using DAO recordsets. My client requires one field to be set to read only if a particular parameter is passed to the application. If no parameters are passed the field is to be enabled.
I used the EnableWindow method to enable/disable the field as required but my client insists that it be read only since he does not want the text to be grayed out.
I have searched through the help files and I'm sure the answer to this one is ridiculously simple - I just can't see it :(
I am using VC++ Version 6, latest SDK, on a 1.6GHz , 1GB P4 running XP Pro.
