Shashi,
What version of Netscape are you using? NS 4.7 doesn't support disabling fields. NS 6 and above support this feature.

Hi,
Sorry for the earlier blank reply.I am developing a Struts-based application and the problem lies in disabling Struts components such as <html:textarea> and <html:select> in Netscape 4.7.Is there any workaround for this problem in Netscape 4.7?Please reply ASAP.Thanx in advance.

Hi Shashi,
<TEXTAREA NAME="kirti" ROWS="" COLS="" onFocus="this.blur();">asdasdad</TEXTAREA>
<html:SELECT NAME="" onFocus="kirti.focus();" onChange="kirti.focus();">
<option>1</option>
<option>2</option>
</html:SELECT>
hope this shud work
pls try this out with different verions of IE and Netscape...also u cud even show these fields in a different colour (probably grey) to indicate to the user that they are disabled.


Regards,<br />Kirti
