In a old mfc application i've some fields that are the decodification of others fields. For example, in the image below, i can edit the "title" dropdown with values Mr, Mrs ecc, and in the field next to it, i see the entire description "Mister"(this field is never editable):
Now, i want give my app a look more modern (flat), so I would remove sunken style. I have the doubt how to change it: - if i leave border in the control, the field description could be interpreted as an editable textbox disabled -if i remove border, it seems a label
Any idea to make clear the concept that the field description is not editable, but is different from a label and from a textbox?
