Question on disabling textfield but maintaining value entered via jquery function

I have a text field called toAccountAmt that is auto populated with the reverse amount of what is entered in the fromAccountAmt field. However, I need to be able to populate the reverse amount in the toAccountAmt field but prevent the user from being able to change it.

I tried to disable as stated below but the disable function remove the value when the form is submitted. I need to maintain the value that I'm entering via the code below when I click the submit button.

Is there a way to do what I'm needing? Any help/direction would be greatly appreciated. Regards.

Here is my jquery code:

As I mentioned in your JSF topic, you need readOnly, not disabled.

I did not see a reply on the incorrect post to the JSF forum.

That got it. Thanks.

Hmm, was removed for some reason. In an case, readOnly will disallow input while keeping the input submittable.
