Subject CForms - different views of the same widget
Date Thu, 03 Nov 2005 14:09:36 GMT
Is it possible to set up the binding and display for a widget so that
it is styled differently depending on whether or not a value was set 
for it *prior* to displaying the form?

I would like to use this approach for a field containing a database 
field index value - if its blank when the form is displayed, the user 
must be able to fill it in (and *must* in fact fill it in); but if a value 
already exists, then the field should be displayed in "read only" 
only mode; preferably just as a text string, [in worse case, it
would also be OK if the field was not displayed at all, but perhaps 
still present in the form as a hidden field).
Any guidance or advice appreciated.
