hello experts,

is there a way to make an editable field non-editable after first save.
that is when Not @IsNewDoc I want to make this editable field as non-editable. User
should only be able to enter text in this field for the first time.

Please advise.
thanks

One way to accomplish your goal may be to use a computed field which computes to the value of the original field.  Then use @IsNewDoc in the hide formulas of the two fields to ensure that only one of the fields shows at once.

Same difference as above really but I tend to use a piece of computed text and an editable field these days... and hide-when formulas as above.

You may want to do that at the PostOpen level that picks a value from a field to hide the edittable field and display it on another field that is computed which contains the value of the hidden field.
If this is a webform, then u might use the "document.forms[0].fieldname.disabled = true.
Hope this helps.
