I have a form which has certain hidden fields, which I dont want the users to see. However, I found out that the user can easily view the field contents by right clicking on the document and acessing the document properties.

I want to prevent access to the hidden fields. Is there a way, this can be accomplished?

You would have to enable encryption on those fields.

Once this is done, you would then need to open the document properties box and go to the Security tab, and select a secret key or public key to encrypt the document with. If you decide to use a secret key, make sure your own Notes ID has a copy of that secret key, or else you will not be able to decrypt the document.
