public virtual bool ReadOnly { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true if end-users can not modify editor’s value; otherwise, false.


Use this property to specify whether the editor’s value can be modified by an end-user.

Note: if the editor displays a text box, end-users are allowed to access the edit value. They can select the desired content’s portion and copy it to the Clipboard, for instance. If you need to prevent such actions, set the RepositoryItem.Enabled property to false.

Changing the ReadOnly property value raises the RepositoryItem.PropertiesChanged event.
