The Text Box control can be set to Read Only. This allows interaction with the control (for instance when scroll bars are required) without the content being edited.
The Read Only property prevents the text from being edited but still allows text selection and scrolling.
Property Type: Static
Default Value: False

Ensure the property is a static property (It will display the gray orb alongside the property name)
The default value of the static property can be changed by selecting the required value directly from the property field.
