Can you elaborate a little. What do you mean by a "tab". What is the actual html element? Can you provide more context?

<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"  width="780px" border="0">

Try this:

document.getElementById('Testtab2ControlObjM').removeAttribute("onclick");                        
document.getElementById('Testtab2ControlObjR').removeAttribute("onclick");

If you need to re-enable them do this:

document.getElementById('Testtab2ControlObjM').setAttribute("onclick", "tabClicked('Test',2,3);");                        
document.getElementById('Testtab2ControlObjR').setAttribute("onclick","tabClicked('Test',2,3);");

yes this code is working fine but tab has to show disable mode
for that i added another line is there any alternative instead of that line

 document.getElementById('Testtab2ControlObjM').style.color='Gray';                          document.getElementById('Testtab2ControlObjM').removeAttribute("onclick");                
                          document.getElementById('Testtab2ControlObjR').removeAttribute("onclick");

Your tab is a table cell. It does not have a disable attribute like a button or textbox. Without changing to a standard input element, I would say what you have is workable.
