disable textbox

In cakephp I want to be able select a date only if I chose 'custom date' from drop down box.
If custom date is not selected I want the texboxes not able to receive input.

I think Ajax is needed but I can do it.

Currently the date can be selected anytime .

    $dateRange=array(0 => 'Fortnightly',1 => 'Today',2=> 'Month', 3 => 'Custom Date');

 echo $this->Form->input('dateRange', array('label' => 'Date Range',
                      'options' => $dateRange,'style'=>'width:150px','selected' => $dateSelect));

  //select date
    echo $this->Form->input('startDate',array('label' => 'Start Date','class'=>'datepicker', 'type'=>'text','style'=>'width:100px;height:30px','value' => $datestart));
