I am not sure if this has already been answered but I am trying to perform a simple cascading dropdown.
  1. [Field: Group]
  2. [Field: Preferred Product]
The form works perfectly until I turn [Field: Group] into "read-only", when I do this [Field: Preferred Product] tells me this is a conditional drop-down.

I want to prevent users from changing [Field: Group] once the record has been added, but I still want users to have the option of changing [Field: Preferred Product].

Thank you for any help you may provide me.

The conditional behavior is most likely based on the reference field, [Related Group] and not the proxy field [Group].

Technically the proxy field used in this, while in edit mode, is actually the reference field.

If you make that read-only, you are in turn removing the reference field.  So you will need to display the reference field on the form in some other place. 

Then your conditional value will work.
