Hello everyone, It is only recently (and after quite a frustrating time) have i come to discover the subtle differences between these two attributes of text elements in a form. While disable renders the text unchangeable (not to mention the faint grey shade too), ReadOnly surprisingly does the same too. But, the difference lies in what happens after the form has been submitted. Surprising as it may seem, "Disabled" field values cannot be retrieved from the request object while the "ReadOnly" ones can be!!! Can anyone shed some more light on this?! Besides the rendering of text in the light grey shade is their any other reason why someone should prefer Disable over ReadOnly?? And while we are on this topic, can anyone tell me if using "ReadOnly" also can one render the disabled text "Light Grey"?
