ASP.Net Readonly textbox

Hi!
I'm working in an application in VS2005. I have a Website that has a page
where the user has to fill in some dates. In 2003 I used to have a function
in javascript that would popup a calendar, the user would select the date
there and then that date would be entered in a read-only textbox, so I was
sure that the format was correct. Now this works ok in 2005, but when I try
to read the text from that textbox in codebehind, I always get what was on
the textbox when the page was rendered. I tried setting the readonly
attribute to false, and it works then, so it's most likely a bug. Does
anybody know a workaround??
Thanks in advance,

Matias

Try setting the TextBox.Enabled property to False and then set the Text
property. The ReadOnly property prevents changing the original content.

Hello, I am stuck with a problem trying to mimic the behavior of a Windows Forms Readonly textbox in HMTL/ASP.NET. Basically, I would like the text to be readonly and overflow the textbox (overflow attribute) with the user being able to scroll thru the text using the arrow keys within the textbox.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows.

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
