Bug: MakeReadOnly hides content in IE

MakeReadOnly() hides the field content in Internet Explorer 8 with SP2007. The field type I have noticed the bug in thus far is multi-text.

 

 

It works correctly in Firefox 3.6.13

Hey jtkinser, sorry it isn't working for you! I'm attempting to reproduce this issue so that I can fix it. I've tried the Multi-line plain text and enhanced rich text fields but both are going into read only mode OK:

I tested this in a SharePoint 2007 custom list using IE 8 and my script makes the fields read only after the page loads. Can you give some more details about your setup? Are you using the most recent versions of the scripts (prototype.js version 1.7 and SPUtility.js verson 0.8.1)? What type of form is this on? Is it possible to include a screenshot or a copy of an error message?
