View Full Version : Disabling control not disabling its onclick event

Hi All,

I use a javascript to enable/disable (based on my business criteria) a html control using its 'disabled' property. It works fine but I see even if the control is disabled, its onclick event is fired. How to avoid this? ( ie. I do not want the onclick event to fire when the control is disabled.)

Not enough information. If you have an input element and you disable it, it's onclick will not fire. If on the other hand, you are using a link (<a>) tag, the disabled attribute doesn't technically apply to it, if a particular browser gives any effect to it for a link, it is not standard, and as a result, unpredictable. If you don't want an event to fire, remove it.

If you need more help:
