readOnly property of that corresponding UI element will help you.Create an attribute of type WDY_BOOLEAN and bind it to the readOnly property of that UI element.

Now based on condition just set the attribute value as abap_true / abap_false.

abap_true  : For making that UI element readonly.

abap_false : For making that UI element input enable.

Hope this helps you to resolve your issue.Feel free to get back with your queries.
