HTML <button> Tag with the 'disabled' Attribute

<button disabled>
Disabled Button

In the above example we add the disabled attribute to a button control.

About the disabled Attribute

The autofocus attribute disables the control. Therefore, if the user tries to use the control, nothing will happen.

This attribute is a boolean attribute. Therefore, if it is present, its value must either be the empty string or a value that is an ASCII case-insensitive match for the attribute's canonical name, with no leading or trailing whitespace (i.e. either disabled or disabled="disabled").

Possible values:

  • [Empty string]
  • disabled

About the <button> Element

The <button> element creates a button control in an HTML document.

Any contents of the <button> element appears on the button.

The <button> element can be associated with a form or stand alone by itself (in such case it could have JavaScript attached via the onclick attribute) to make the button actually do something.
