Prerna, I dont know the answer sorry. I hate to say this but, your name does not comply with the Javaranch naming guidelines which can be found at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp please register again with a valid name.
use the readonly property to the html tag like this <input type=text value='javaranch' readonly style='background:gray'> If you want to show it as disabled, use stylesheet as shown above. Hope you understand the solution
