Thanks for the response. How do you learn this stuff? help ctx-text on my machine starts an infinite molded print. I've been thinking a bit more about my problem. And It gets more complicated. I want to "freeze" check boxes, Choice boxes, and disable the "Save" button and so forth. That's going to be a lot of work to set a display to "read only". I've hit on another way that'll do the job for my application. The solution is to display the layout as an image when read only. The crude code below is a proof-of-concept. =========== unview/all DataWindow: layout/offset [field button "Display only" [DisplayBox/Image: make Image! MainPanel/Pane DisplayBox/Size: DisplayBox/image/Size MainPanel/Pane: DisplayPanel Show MainPanel ] field button field ] 0x0 view/new layout/offset [MainPanel: box 300x400] 0x0 MainPanel/Pane: DataWindow DisplayPanel: layout/offset [DisplayBox: box 300x400 [] ; no left click ;; Right click to "reactivate" [ MainPanel/Pane: DataWindow Show MainPanel ] ] 0x0 Show MainPanel do-events =========== Colin.
