Disabled form fields are not POSTed

New Course Coming Soon:

Get Really Good at Git

Was working with a form where I wanted a field to not be edited by users, so I used the disabled attribute on it.

But, it wasn’t sent to the server when the form was submitted.

I eventually used the readonly attribute to make it uneditable, yet be sent in the POST request.

Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching May 21, 2024. Join the waiting list!
