Enable readonly or disabled text input field

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

How do we enable a text input field that is readonly by default ?
 
Here is example code:
 
<form name="frm" action="result.asp" method="post">

<p>From:</p>
<input id="from" name="from" value="" readonly="readonly">
<img id="btn_from" alt="calendar" src="calendar.gif">
<script type="text/javascript">showCalendar('from', 'btn_from');</script>

<p>To:</p>
<input id="to" name="to" value="" readonly="readonly">
<img id="btn_to" alt="calendar" src="calendar.gif">
<script type="text/javascript">showCalendar('to', 'btn_to');</script>

<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Get results">

</form>
 
The 'from' and 'to' input fields are 'readonly'. An image of a calendar appears next to these fields onscreen. This image acts as a button which, when pressed, popups a calendar to allow a user to select a date. It is too difficult to select a date using the popup.
 
I need to input a date (string of text) into each readonly field (to be able to then submit the form). Is it possible?
 
Thanks in advance.

If you run Internet Explorer use the IE UDF that comes with AutoIt and modify the readonly property of the input field.

Thanks for your reply.

For the benefit of others, the 'ControlCommand' function works, ie:

$oIE = _IECreate("https://<url appears here>")
$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "frm")

$from = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "from")
$to = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "to")

ControlCommand($oForm, '', '[NAME:from]', 'IsEnabled')
_IEFormElementSetValue($from, '29/05/2013')

ControlCommand($oForm, '', '[NAME:to]', 'IsEnabled')
_IEFormElementSetValue($to, '30/05/2013')
