      Description

      Summary:
      When setting a TextField/TextArea object's "editable" property to false, the end-user should be able to select the text and copy it to the clipboard. Allowing this is typically the main purpose of making a field read-only.

      If the app developer doesn't want the text to be selectable, then disabling it via the "enabled" property would be better.

      Note:
      On iOS, we currently support copying text from a read-only TextArea.
      Unfortunately, iOS' TextField does not support this. (It should though.)
