Hey all,

Need help with script that removes the disabled state of a button when a checkbox is clicked. The default state of the checkbox is unchecked and the default state of the button is disabled.

When the user checks the box the disabled state and disabled class is removed.

<input type="checkbox" name="term" value="Bike" />

<button type="button" disabled="disabled" class="disabled">Click Me!</button>

The framework Im using is jQuery. Thanks for your help.

test page : http://jsfiddle.net/35h5r/1/

$(document).ready(function() {
    
$(":checkbox[name='term'][value='Bike']").click(function() {
    if( $(this).is(":checked") ) {
        $("button").removeAttr("disabled");
    }
    else {
        $("button").attr("disabled",true);
    }
})
    
    })

Open in new window


replace the selector $("button") if you give an ID to your button
