I have a display only form - however, if you click on a field, the background turns White as though it's the Current Field.  How can I turn this off?

Thanks

Set the Locked property to: Yes
Set the Enabled Property to: No

This way you can't even give the control the focus.
(You can't select, click, or "go into" it)
