:enabled Selector in JQuery



version added: 1.0jQuery(‘:enabled’)

As with other pseudo-class selectors (those that begin with a “:”) it is recommended to precede it with a tag name or some other selector; otherwise, the universal selector (“*”) is implied. In other words, the bare $(':enabled') is equivalent to $('*:enabled'), so $('input:enabled') should be used instead.


Finds all input elements that are enabled.

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <script src="/scripts/jquery-1.4.js"></script>

    <input name="email" disabled="disabled" />
    <input name="id" />
<script>$("input:enabled").val("this is it");</script>
