$(":input").each(function(){
  $(this).attr("readonly", true);
});

readonly attribute don't work on checkbox and radio, you may want to disable radio and checkbox : $("input[type='checkbox'],input[type='radio']").attr("disabled","true");

test page :


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<script language="javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.4.2.min.js"></script>
<script language="javascript">
	$(document).ready(function() {
		$("input[type='text']").attr("readonly","readonly");
		$("input[type='checkbox'],input[type='radio']").attr("disabled","true");
	});
</script>
</head>
<body>
<input type="text" /><br>
<input type="text" /><br>
<input type="text" /><br>
<input type="text" /><br>
<input type="text" /><br>
<input type="text" /><br>
<input type="text" /><br>
<input type="text" /><br>
<input type="text" /><br>
<input type="text" /><br>
<input type="submit" /><br>
<input type="radio" /><br>
<input type="checkbox" /><br>
</body>
</html>

ok, in that case, shouldn't we disable all the inputs?

$(":input").attr('disabled', 'disabled');

if you disable them all, you can't get their value on server side (form POST/GET)

<<and how can I do this in select?>>
it takes care of select as well.

<<if you disable them all, you can't get their value on server side (form POST/GET)>>
I think he can enable it back using a similar
$(":input").removeAttr('disabled');

Similar logic will be applied to checkboxes as well, since they cannot be set to readonly.
