I have two People Picker fields on the edit form of my Sharepoint list (Approver and Requester).  If I disable the fields, users are still able to remove the people that are already populated in the list.


The reason I'm disabling them is that I ran into a problem with expressions not evaluating if I have those fields hidden, since my expressions are depending on those fields.  For instance, enable Approver Comments field only if Approver is the current user.  If I hide the Approver field, that expression will not work.


Is there a way of either preventing users from removing people from a people picker field when the field is disabled, or using hidden fields in expressions?


Hope you can help.


Thank you.
