Property values



Default. Element is not disabled.


Element is disabled.


When an element is disabled, it appears dimmed and does not respond to user input. Disabled elements do not respond to mouse events, nor will they respond to the IHTMLElement3::contentEditable property.

If an element's IHTMLStyleElement::disabled property is set to false but it is contained within a IHTMLStyleElement::disabled element, it cannot override the IHTMLStyleElement::disabled state of its container.

For link, style and styleSheet, the attribute sets or retrieves whether a style sheet is applied to the object.

Note  For OPTGROUP and OPTION, the functionality specified by the HTML 4.01 standard is not currently implemented. You can define your own functionality.
