Try this function:

function disable() {
for(var i=0; i<formnames.length;i++) {
formElements = formnames[i].elements;
for(var j=0; j<formElements.length;j++) {
document.formnames[i].formElements[j].disabled = true;
}
}
}

And call this function onclick of button.

Sorry I missed few things.


Can you try this function:

function disable() {
var formnames = document.forms;
var formElements = new Array();

for(var i=0; i<formnames.length;i++) {
formElements = formnames[i].elements;
for(var j=0; j<formElements.length;j++) {
document.formnames[i].formElements[j].disabled = true;
}
}
}

And call this function onclick of button.

Try this simple function

function disablefunction() {
for(var i=0; i<document.forms[0].length;i++) {
document.forms[0].elements[i].disabled = true;
}
}

The above solutions also should work with minor changes. They are most generic solutions. I will send you a PM with my email id.
