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.

Note: In Internet Explorer, this attribute will change the color of the form elements to gray, but they will still be usable (not disabled).


Browser Support

The numbers in the table specify the first browser version that fully supports the attribute.

Differences Between HTML and XHTML

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