if you are getting your data from a database using the SqlDataSource you can use the BoundField property "ReadOnly" like this

 <asp:BoundField DataField="Password" HeaderText="Password" SortExpression="Password" ReadOnly="True"  />

Good luck

No the problem is I have a function to Create the password. So before I do the insert I want to fill the password textbox with my random password giving them the option to change it or keep the random password.

In that case you can use an item template instead of the BoundField
you can see a walkthru

all you need is set a label to hold the password and you can get it by setting the text property of the field to your script "the one generating the password"
