Hi Experts

Could you point how to disable all the combobox of a modal view at the same time?

 $('#view input').prop("disabled", false);  // Runs OK for all inputs
 $('#view select.dropdown').attr('disabled', false); // It doesn't runs for combos.

Thanks in advance

$('#view select.dropdown').attr('disabled', false);

Open in new window

This will only act on <select> with class "dropdown"
<div id="view">
  <select class="dropdown"></select> <!--YES -->
  <select></select> <!-- No -->

Open in new window

Assuming the above is inside the #view you mentioned earlier then

$('#view .select select').prop('disabled',true)

Open in new window

Note in your opening code you had .prop('disabled',false) - your question says you want to disable the <select> which means you should be using a value of true not false?

No points for this please, but there is a thing called semantic markup.  It refers to the use of meaningful and intentional names for data elements.  If you name a <span> with a meaningless word like "select" you're violating the concepts of semantics, and this leads to confusion when other people (or you, if you come back to this work a few days later) try to understand your intent.  A better practice is to think about the meaning of each data element in the browser viewport.  Give meaningful names to these data elements, and it will help you organize your thinking about the user-experience you're trying to produce.
