Has anyone found a nice way to set Perspective inputs (textfields, etc.) read-only, like we can in Vision (Behavior > Editable)?
My workaround is to use the enabled property, but it displays a red stop cursor and and the background color is way too dark. And I didn’t find a way to set the css attribute readonly (impossible?) on them either, and it doesn’t seem to be settable via css classes.
I think there’s a nice semantic distinction between read-only and enabled, it would be cool if we had it in Perspective too.
You can modify the appearance of disabled components by way of theming your project.
I obviously don’t know how your project is used or what expectations are where it will be used, but as a user I find read-only inputs to be one of the worst things ever. The only applicable usage I can think of is restricting permissions - at which point the cursor makes sense. I never recommend read-only inputs (outside of boolean representations being displayed by disabled toggle switches or checkboxes), and always instead recommend using whichever applicable display component makes the most sense.
Hi, thank you for the feedback.
The thing is I’m creating a lot of forms for Q.A techs to input quality data in different contexts, and instead of re-creating all of those forms with labels only, I’d like to set inputs as read-only when the forms are filled in & saved, for reviewing later.
I’ll modify a theme to make the disabled states less dark, thanks again.
