I am using a text box and enable it or disable it depending on user selection of a drop down.
When the text box is disabled, the page does not allow it to enter values but the text box does not get greyed out. I am using document.form.value.textbox.disabled = true.
Is there a way in which i can grey out the text box when it is disabled.

You'll notice that the text box does not gray out, but if there was any text in the text box, THAT would be grayed out... The easiest way to gray out the text box itself would be to assign a style to it... Like this:

<input type="text" value="" Disabled style="background:#DFDFDF;">

button.CssClass = ""

try this:

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
function checkSelect(this1){
if(this1.selectedIndex==1){
document.form1.textbox1.disabled = true
document.form1.textbox1.style.background = "#DFDFDF";}
else{
document.form1.textbox1.disabled = false
document.form1.textbox1.style.background = "#FFFFFF";}}
</script>
<body>
<form name="form1" onSubmit="return false;">
<select name="selectbox1" onChange="checkSelect(this);" onLoad="checkSelect(this);">
<option>Enabled</option>
<option>Disabled</option>
</select><br />
<input type="text" name="textbox1" />
</form>
</body>
