It is possible to delete elements of a read-only multiselect (Bug)

Hello Retool team,

I just noticed that it is possible to delete elements of the (new) multiselect component even though it is set to read-only mode. You can just click on the "x" that is next to each selected element, even though it is not possible to open the full list of elements.

Would be great to see this fixed as "read-only" does otherwise not really apply to this component when I can delete elements while this option is activated.

Thank you and best,

Hi @betternet!

I just reproduced this on my end and we definitely shouldn't be allowing values to be deleted in "read only" mode. I created a bug report for this, and will let you know as soon as I have any updates for you!

Talk soon,
