Add View only values to Post Processing Script

Posted · Add View only values to Post Processing Script

I have updated the ColorMix 2-1 Post Processing script to mix 3 colors.  I have found that to make it work I need to show the Start and End Mix ratios for all of the extruders.  The total for all of the extruders start and end ration has to add up to 100%.  It works to show all values since setting the first two extruders will default the third to the remaining amount.  The problem shows up if you edit either value for the third extruder since changing the value overrides the "value" setting.  

Is there a way to make a setting show on the screen but be view only?
