Background
==========

I have a field in my form which is a readonly field. I Have a method to conditionally set this field to readable at runtime. I cannot figure out why this function set the fields to readable when called. Please help!
The function is below:

Function definition
===================
<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">function enablefields() {
document.forms[0].customerNo.readonly=false;
document.forms[0].regDate.readonly=false;
}
</SCRIPT>

Function call
=============
<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
enablefields();
</SCRIPT>


FULL SOURCE
===========


<form name="cargoForm" method="post" action="/cargo/CustomerView.do" onsubmit="return confirmDelete('DelCustomer.do');">

<table width="500" border="0">
<tr>
<td width="54">Customer No:</td>
<td width="37"><input type="text" name="customerNo" maxlength="5" size="5" value="" readonly="readonly"></td>
<td width="59">Reg Date:</td>
<td width="92"><input type="text" name="regDate" value="" readonly="readonly"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="64">First Name:</td>
<td width="37"><input type="text" name="firstName" value=""></td>

Eric,

Thank you very much indeed! It now works! I did not realise that Javascript is case sensitive - I have to find time to learn this language.
