How to disable a list box based on a checkbox

Hi there

Hope someone can help me out, I need some JQuery code.

If I check a check-box called "chkAllAccounts" it will disable a drop down list box called "lstClients"

If I un-check the same check-box called "chkAllAccounts" it will enable the drop down list box called "lstClients"

Hope this makes sense?

thanks

Something like this will do it:

$('input[name=chkAllAccounts]').change(function() {
    if ($(this).is(':checked')) {
        $('select[name=lstClients]').prop('disabled', 'disabled');
    } else {
        $('select[name=lstClients]').prop('disabled', false);
    }
});

Open in new window

Here's a fiddle to play with:

        $('#lstClients').attr('disabled', $(this).prop('checked'));
});

Or even better:
$('#chkAllAccounts').on('change', function(){
    $('#lstClients').prop('disabled', $(this).prop('checked'));
});
