Hello ,

function validateRelationshipGender() {

        var gender, genderForm;
        gender = document.getElementById("NewUser:ContactPersonGender").value;
        genderForm = document.getElementById("NewUser:ContactPersonGender").disabled = true;
        if (gender == "Male" || gender == "Female") {

            genderForm = document.getElementById("NewUser:ContactPersonGender").disabled = false;

do you want us to read the code and somehow read your mind as to what the problem could be? or would you be kind enough to tell whats the problem with the code?

actually i have two drop-down text boxes one is relationship(father,mother,son,daughter) and another one is gender(male ,female) , while i selecting relation ship father it automatically changed to male , and for mother as female (those process comes from bean) it will take 3 seconds , within 3 seconds i want disable and enable gender text box , using JS code using "onselect" event,

i tried but its not working , the above code is for disable and enable gender box but its not working for me , i m using JSF 1.0 version ,is this possible to do ?

I would recommend using jQuery, it makes JavaScipting easier to write and read:

To disable a control using jQuery use the attr() function passing in the attribute as the first parameter and value as the second.

$("#ddlc").attr("disabled", true);

where ddlc is the id of the control (which in my case is ASP.NET and in yours probably JSF):

<asp:dropdownlist id="ddlc" runat="server" clientidmode="Static"></asp:dropdownlist>

For detailed jQuery documentation refer: jQuery[^]

Please let me know if this doesn't work for you and I will remove this solution.

for jsf its very complicated to use , i will try my best .
$('#dropdown1').attr('disabled',true) for disable dropdown
$('#dropdown1').attr('disabled',false) for enable dropdown
