I have a checkbox that, given certain conditions, needs to be disabled. It turns out HTTP doesn't post disabled inputs. How can I get around that?

To get "readonly" look and POST checkbox's value at the same time, just add a hidden "input" with the same name and value as your checkbox. You have to keep it next to your checkbox or between the same <form></form> tags:

Code: Select all

<input type="checkbox" checked="checked" disabled="disabled" name="Tests" value="4">YOUR TEXT</input>

<input type="hidden" id="Tests" name="Tests" value="4" />
Also, just to let you know readonly="readonly", readonly="true", readonly="", or just READONLY will NOT solve this!
