Bonita Studio 6.c - Form design, How to DISABLE a widget , not Hide it...


Hi there,

I know how to hide a widget using conditions, but how do we keep a widget visible but disabled? For example a Submit Button...

I know the forms are not built using standard HTML etc...that would be too easy...

Many thanks and best regards Seán

you need to use the Read-only option:

Hi Aurelien,

As per my example above this does not work with Submit buttom...there is no read only capability.

Why do I want to do this? Based on the underlying capabilities (parameters of a workflow) I want to Enable a Submit button or Disable it, though I still want it shown to the user...

In every other application design methodology I have seen control capabilities as follows

Visible, Enabled Visible, Disabled InVisible

In Bonita we can only do 1 and 3, but I require 2 also...

Many thanks and best regards Seán
