Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Targeting form element states, part of CSS: Selectors.
- HTML allows several form elements…to have either checked, enabled, or disabled states.…That is, times when they're checked,…or when interacting with them is either allowed or not.…Now by default, all form elements are enabled.…However, there are times that you might want…to disable them until certain conditions have been met.…CSS gives us the ability to style these states…through the checked, enabled, and disabled…pseudo class selectors.…Taking a quick look at enabled.html file,…in the 03_03 directory, you can kind of see…the syntax for them, they're just pseudo class selectors.…
We have checked, enabled, and disabled.…To give you an illustration of what…these can actually do for us, I'm gonna scroll down…to the bottom of this page in the browser,…I've got a form at the bottom of the page…that has a couple of elements that are disabled.…You'll notice, for example, that no matter…how hard I click into the name or the email,…or on the subscribe button, nothing happens.…All the form elements inside that are disabled.…
