Property Value

Type Default Description


true, if the TextEdit is grayed out in read only mode; otherwise, false.


The RepositoryItem.ReadOnly property allows you to specify whether the editor’s value can be changed by an end-user. By default, if the TextEdit is read-only, it is rendered grayed out. Set the UseReadOnlyAppearance property to false to prevent the TextEdit from being rendered grayed out in the read only mode.
