Pernahkah kamu ingin mengaktifkan suatu elemen form dengan jQuery untuk input, textarea, select atapun elemen lainnya?

Have you ever wanted to enable or disable a form element using jQuery? For element such as input, textarea, select, etc..

To accomplish that you can use prop() method from jQuery to enable or disable a form element. Here's the example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Disable or Enable an Input with jQuery</title>
    label {
        display: block;
        margin: 10px 0;
<script src=""></script>
        $('form input[type="submit"]').prop("disabled", true);
            if($(this).prop("checked") == true){
                $('form input[type="submit"]').prop("disabled", false);
            else if($(this).prop("checked") == false){
                $('form input[type="submit"]').prop("disabled", true);
        <label>Name: <input type="text" name="username"></label>
        <label>Email: <input type="email" name="email"></label>
        <label><input type="checkbox" class="agree"> I agree to terms and conditions.</label>
        <input type="submit" value="Submit">
