PHP Code Help

This code pulls data from my mysql database & displays it in a form...how can I make it read only?

<td> <b> Due Date:  </b><br><input type="text" name="datepicker" size="15" maxlength="30" value="'.$row[3].'" /> </td>

Try using input disabled.

Disabled controls won't be submitted to the server on a form submit, so you may want to use readonly instead.

My two cents about: kaufmed solution seems to be the best: it prevents to modify data but it still submits them and allows to move info forward. I seriously think you have to request attention and modify your choice: you at least shour split points between between Edward Cho and kaufmed.

It's cool. My comment got posted after he had already accepted. And he may not need to submit the input--that's unclear from his question.

@kaufmed: it's clear, that were only my two cents :-) Since I read the thread more than an hour after it was closed, I had the full view of the possible answers and I told my opinion: it was not requested but I couldn't resist ;-)
