:disabled Selector

disabled selector

version added: 1.0jQuery(':disabled')

Description: Selects all elements that are disabled.

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 $(':disabled') is equivalent to $('*:disabled'), so $('input:disabled') should be used instead.

Example:

Finds all input elements that are disabled.

<!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:disabled").val("this is it");</script>
</body>
</html>
