Actually, I figured it out myself, but you guys were QUICK so I'm giving you the points.

As a curiosity, readonly works on most other types (certainly on text). Why not on checkbox?

Seems odd to have to remember "disabled" vs. "readonly", etc.

It is something to do with the fact that a checkbox is not considered to have a value it only has a state either on/off. Doesn't make sense to me either.

To jacko72:

But in this case the EXACT thing I'm trying to accomplish is that if (in another process), someone has already USED one of the checked items, it CANNOT be unchecked, since it's already in use.

Oh well.

Thanks!
