If we disable a field with TCEFORM we don't want it to render but he should be able to edit it. If we must put a default value for a user without letting him see the field in the form we can't use the disabled option anymore.

example :
In the form of a content properties we disable the colpos field. On page module if we want to create a content in the left column the content is created in the center column because the user is not allowed to edit the colpos field.

Hi, as the issue is very old I like to ask, do you still have this issue? Which TYPO3 version are you using?

As far as I have understood from the description, the following page TSConfig should work

TCEFORM.tt_content.colPos.disabled = 1
TCAdefaults.tt_content.colPos = 1

am I missing something? Could we have a step-by-step example of what's not working?

Closing due to lack of feedback and use case. To my knowledge, there are enough possibilities to readonly / hide fields using tca.
