Blocked by: Blocking:


for the question "How do I disable/enable a form element?", examples use ".attr" method instead of ".prop" method as preferred in the new jquery 1.6.1 (


Disable #x

$('#x').attr('disabled', true); should use prop

Enable #x

$('#x').attr('disabled', false); should use prop

and there are probably more like this in this page!

Thanks for alerting us about this. We've discussed how we might approach updating the FAQ as there's a need for us to maintain jQuery 1.4 on that particular subdomain, however we feel that perhaps sticking the examples up on jsFiddle would allow us to provide examples across multiple/different versions. I'll take a look into updating this page soon.

Thanks for contributing! The entire old docs site is going away shortly, and with it, this bug!
