$('#xyz').attr("disabled", "disabled"); ¿
or :
$('#xyz').attr("disabled", ""); ¿

http://www.w3.org/TR/html-markup/input.submit.html

in the jQuery plugin you can find this line :
elem.setAttribute( name, "" + value );

Open in new window


where elem is your input
name is the disabled attribute
the second argument is a string

Use .prop() - http://api.jquery.com/prop/

$('#elem').prop('disabled', true)
$('#elem').prop('disabled', false)

If you are using latest version of jquery then use prop otherwise $('#xyz').attr("disabled", "disabled");

I prefer:

$('#xyz').attr( { disabled: true } );

because you can add more stuff:

$('#xyz').attr( { disabled: true, value: "Locked" } );

works with prop too:

$('#xyz').prop( { disabled: true } );
$('#xyz').prop( { disabled: true, value: "Locked" } );
