Add-On Type(s)



A fieldtype that shows the data of another fieldtype as read-only text.

This fieldtype will read the data from another field, and display it as read-only text. It can be used with member groups to allow one group the ability to edit a field, while the other can still view but not edit. Another case is if you want to show the data of one field in another tab for reference.

Please note that the EE 2.0 layouts are based on JS, and the editable fieldtype could be shown fairly easily by a clever person. This fieldtype is not intended to be a secure way to lock down data inputs.

Also note that it is only useful for editing existing content, as it reads the data from an entry, not from the live user input.
