Browser Support

Internet Explorer Firefox Opera Google Chrome Safari

The disabled attribute is supported in all major browsers.


Definition and Usage

The disabled attribute is a boolean attribute.

When present, it specifies that the <input> element should be disabled.

A disabled input element is unusable and un-clickable.

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

Tip: Disabled <input> elements in a form will not be submitted.

Note: The disabled attribute will not work with <input type="hidden">.


Differences Between HTML 4.01 and HTML5

NONE.


Differences Between HTML and XHTML

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