You can't.
The way to do this is to put the textbox in a container control like a frame and then disable the container.

Alternatively you can set the Locked property to true and leave Enabled as true

You can you, just have to do it in code

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Text1.Enabled = False
Text1.BackColor = vbRed
End Sub

this works
