dhtmlxform and combo


i’m trying to use a combobox in a dhtmlxform control, using JSON as following:

{value: “Blank”, label: “Blank”, selected:true},
{value: “Y”, label: “Yes”},
{value: “N”, label: “No”}

I have two questions:

  • How can I make this combo read only? the instruction readonly:“readonly” doesn’t work.

  • We want to have an option selected based on the value retrieved from a select and that will be stored in a variable and that will be one of the possible values on the combo.



please use attached fixed files (v.3.0).

Hi Andrei,

i used the library provided but the combo is not yet readonly.

Do i need perform something more?


I am experiencing what appears like the same problem

detail.getCombo('status').readonly(true,true);  // doesn't work

var s = detail.getCombo('status');
s.readonly(true,true);                                   // doesn't work

detail.doWithItem("status", "setReadOnly", true); // doesn't work

Please advise.

Locally it works fine
