:enabled Selector

enabled selector

version added: 1.0jQuery(':enabled')

Description: Selects all elements that are enabled.

As with other pseudo-class selectors (those that begin with a ":") it is recommended to precede it with a tag name or some other selector; otherwise, the universal selector ("*") is implied. In other words, the bare $(':enabled') is equivalent to $('*:enabled'), so $('input:enabled') should be used instead.

Example:

Finds all input elements that are enabled.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
	<form>

    <input name="email" disabled="disabled" />
    <input name="id" />
  </form>
<script>$("input:enabled").val("this is it");</script>
</body>
</html>
