<object IsReadOnlyCaretVisible="bool" .../>

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if a read-only text box displays a caret; otherwise, false. The default is false.

When IsReadOnly is true, a user can still select and copy text. If the IsReadOnlyCaretVisible property is also set to true, a caret will appear in the text box when the text box has keyboard focus. When IsReadOnly is false, the IsReadOnlyCaretVisible property has no effect.
