Helper text does not display for read-only field
Helper text does not display for read-only fields and Review sections.
Steps to Reproduce
- Add a field with a textbox or a dropdown control and set it as Read-only (always). Helper icon does not display.
- Add a field with a textbox or dropdown control. Helper icon does not display in the Review section or harness.
This behavior is as per Pega product design.
Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior:
Helper text does not display on read-only fields because the Helper Text concept is to help users understand how to interact with the control they are operating. Since the user does not operate on read-only fields, Helper text support is not provided.
To display Helper tip for a read-only field, configure a 'Smart tip' onHover action item for the cell.
