In a Next-Gen Project, is there a way to make a custom field read-only?

In this case, the field (we'll call it Field #3) is populated via an automation which takes the input of two other custom fields (Fields #1 and #2), does a mathematical computation, and outputs the result as a numerical value in Field #3. 

However, once the value is updated, you can change it manually, which is bad. Since this value is being used elsewhere, it needs to stay the result of the computation. Therefore, I want to make Field #3 read-only. 

Any thoughts?

Hi Brent,

No, you cannot make a custom field read only in Next-gen.

Thanks for the quick answer. Next-Gen strikes again I guess.
