Copy field but not modifiable

Question asked by Gerrly on Sep 24, 2015

I have several fields disabled in browse mode because if they are modified, it will effect a cascade of changes on the entire record (the fields in question are from other linked tables).  For instance, if someone accidentally erases or types in my Gene field, it will erase or change other fields that are linked to that particular gene.  Make sense?

 

Okay, so my users want to be able to click in these fields so that they can copy the data in them.  For one field, I have a trigger alerting the user that any changes they make will affect the whole page, but I don't really want to put that on all of the fields because that's pretty annoying.  Any way I can disable modification but still allow them to click and highlight in the field?

 

Thanks in advance.
