Browser Support

Internet Explorer Firefox Opera Google Chrome Safari

The disabled attribute is supported in all major browsers, except Internet Explorer and Safari.


Definition and Usage

The disabled attribute is a boolean attribute.

When present, it specifies that a group of related form elements (a fieldset) should be disabled.

A disabled fieldset is unusable and un-clickable.

The disabled attribute can be set to keep a user from using the fields until some other condition has been met (like selecting a checkbox, etc.). Then, a JavaScript could remove the disabled value, and make the fieldset usable.


Differences Between HTML 4.01 and HTML5

The disabled attribute is new for the <fieldset> tag in HTML5.


Differences Between HTML and XHTML

In XHTML, attribute minimization is forbidden, and the disabled attribute must be defined as <fieldset disabled="disabled">.
