Disable a drop down field depending on the value in another field.

I have a drop down field that I would like to disable depending on the value entered in another field.

 

I have a drop down field with conditional formatting if Global Variable = 0 hide it by setting the fill color the same as the back ground and setting the pen color the same else set it to show.

 

Setting on top of the drop down field is another field that points to the same field in my table. This field has conditional formatting if Global Variable = 1 hide it by setting the fill color the same as the back ground and setting the pen color the same else set it to show.

 

Works nice.

 

BUT if you click on the area where the hidden drop down field is it displays and allows you to modify the value.

 

How do I disable data entry in a drop down field depending on values in other fields?

 

If I could uncheck the box (In Browse mode) in Field behavior dialog box from a script it would do the job.

 

Any hint would help:smileyvery-happy:
