It appears that our users are not able to copy text from a readonly field on firefox, although they could on other browsers. This doesn’t seem to happen with the coaches toolkit, so I am thinking if there is a different implementation or bug that’s causing this behavior. It sounds like the answer lies with the use of readonly HTML attribute vs disabled attribute.
Is this something you have looked at earlier? Thanks for your time.SPARK SupportMarch 20, 2017 at 3:39 pm #4026
Yes, I have looked into this issue previously. The controls are working as designed. SPARK controls set the input fields to a status of disabled to prevent input, which Firefox disallows copying from. The Stock controls appear to render the control as simple HTML when set to Read Only.
Depending on your design requirements, you may want to utilize an Output Text control in place of Read-Only Text controls or set the Render As option to Simple HTML in a Table if applicable.

Thank you for your time in sharing your inputs for this topic. I talked to some of my colleagues here and they have also agreed that its’ been a challenge they have been trying to address. The output text control is one idea, also I voted for a 13-year old bug on this firefox thread as well in case they can fix the browser.SPARK SupportMarch 21, 2017 at 11:14 am #4036
I agree with you about the Firefox bug.
