TextBoxBase.ReadOnly TextBoxBase.ReadOnly TextBoxBase.ReadOnly TextBoxBase.ReadOnly Property

Definition

Gets or sets a value indicating whether text in the text box is read-only.

public:
 property bool ReadOnly { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool ReadOnly { get; set; }
member this.ReadOnly : bool with get, set
Public Property ReadOnly As Boolean

Property Value

true if the text box is read-only; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Remarks

When this property is set to true, the contents of the control cannot be changed by the user at runtime. With this property set to true, you can still set the value of the Text property in code. You can use this feature instead of disabling the control with the Enabled property to allow the contents to be copied and ToolTips to be shown.
