Is anyway to set a people picket field to read only?
I can disable it using the form properties but I am using the API to set the people picker on the form. When set to disabled, the value does not save. I need to have a way to set the field to read only so the value is saved.
Good Morning Bruce Stemplewski,
Have you tried changing your People Picker Control's mode to Display as opposed to auto/edit? You can do so through right-clicking your control and updating the Control Mode property within the Advanced accordion.
When I make this change, I get a "read-only" type view in edit mode. Is this what you're after?
Setting the Control mode to Display caused the control to not be rendered at all in Edit mode, so that's not good...
I tried using a Nintex rule to disable it but that didn't work either (maybe a bug?)
The only other thing I can think of is placing the People picker inside a Panel and then making the Panel disabled via Nintex rules... if that doesn't work either, then you'll probably need to use jQuery.
I can't make it Display because I need to be able to set the value with an API call.
This works for my coworker but it does not work for me. He needs to re-enable SOA in PreSaveAction
var soa = NWF$('#' + SOA);
//Read Only Columns
One idea I had was to use a calculated value but it shows the login ID rather than the actual name.
This is so frustrating. I spend more hours on simple little things like this that should be easy to do.
The way around it is to have 2 people picker controls for the same list value, one for display and one for updating value.
1. Set the people picker as a readonly by selecting advanced mode-> control mode-> display.
2. Set the second people picker control by selecting Appearance -> Visible -> false.
