Read Only elements shouldn't look like an editable field

    Hi Le, just to help with a little background. The reason we did this is to help with "refreshing" the information in real time. Since read-only fields are typically used with calculations, we wanted to be provide real time feedback when a calculation changed. 

    The old approach (text field with read-only option enabled) looks like what you are requesting, but lacked the ability to refresh in real-time. This is the primary reason to create the new widget type with the same characteristics as a normal text field.

    Hey Tony, I think the Read Only element works great with Dynamic Value and always suggest customers use this element! The main concern I've heard from groups is that it looks like a field that can be edited. So not really anything wrong with the element itself, just a little design enhancement.
