Style disabled button with CSS


Question

I'm trying to change the style of a button with an embedded image as seen in the following Fiddle:

http://jsfiddle.net/krishnathota/xzBaZ/1/

In the example there are no images, I'm afraid.

I'm trying to:

  1. Change the background-color of the button when it is disabled
  2. Change the image in the button when it is disabled
  3. Disable the hover effect when disabled
  4. When you click on the image in the button and drag it, the image can be seen separately; I want to avoid that
  5. The text on the button can be selected. I want to avoid that, too.

I tried doing in button[disabled]. But some effects could not be disabled. like top: 1px; position: relative; and image.

Accepted Answer

For the disabled buttons you can use the :disabled pseudo-element. It works for all the elements.

For browsers/devices supporting CSS2 only, you can use the [disabled] selector.

As with the image, don't put an image in the button. Use CSS background-image with background-position and background-repeat. That way, the image dragging will not occur.

Selection problem: here is a link to the specific question:

Example for the disabled selector:

button {
  border: 1px solid #0066cc;
  background-color: #0099cc;
  color: #ffffff;
  padding: 5px 10px;
}

button:hover {
  border: 1px solid #0099cc;
  background-color: #00aacc;
  color: #ffffff;
  padding: 5px 10px;
}

button:disabled,
button[disabled]{
  border: 1px solid #999999;
  background-color: #cccccc;
  color: #666666;
}

div {
  padding: 5px 10px;
}
<div>
  <button> This is a working button </button>
</div>

<div>
  <button disabled> This is a disabled button </button>
</div>

I think you should be able to select a disabled button using the following:

button[disabled=disabled], button:disabled {
    // your css rules
}

Add the below code in your page. Trust me, no changes made to button events, to disable/enable button simply add/remove the button class in Javascript.

Method 1

 <asp Button ID="btnSave" CssClass="disabledContent" runat="server" />

<style type="text/css">
    .disabledContent 
    {
        cursor: not-allowed;
        background-color: rgb(229, 229, 229) !important;
    }

    .disabledContent > * 
    {
        pointer-events:none;
    }
</style>

Method 2

<asp Button ID="btnSubmit" CssClass="btn-disable" runat="server" />

<style type="text/css">
    .btn-disable
        {
        cursor: not-allowed;
        pointer-events: none;

        /*Button disabled - CSS color class*/
        color: #c0c0c0;
        background-color: #ffffff;

        }
</style>

To apply grey button CSS for a disabled button.

button[disabled]:active, button[disabled],
input[type="button"][disabled]:active,
input[type="button"][disabled],
input[type="submit"][disabled]:active,
input[type="submit"][disabled] ,
button[disabled]:hover,
input[type="button"][disabled]:hover,
input[type="submit"][disabled]:hover
{
  border: 2px outset ButtonFace;
  color: GrayText;
  cursor: inherit;
  background-color: #ddd;
  background: #ddd;
}

By CSS:

.disable{
   cursor: not-allowed;
   pointer-events: none;
}

Them you can add any decoration to that button. For change the status you can use jquery

$("#id").toggleClass('disable');

For all of us using bootstrap, you can change the style by adding the "disabled" class and using the following:

HTML

<button type="button"class="btn disabled">Text</button>

CSS

.btn:disabled,
.btn.disabled{
  color:#fff;
  border-color: #a0a0a0;
  background-color: #a0a0a0;
}
.btn:disabled:hover,
.btn:disabled:focus,
.btn.disabled:hover,
.btn.disabled:focus {
  color:#fff;
  border-color: #a0a0a0;
  background-color: #a0a0a0;
}

Remember that adding the "disabled" class doesn't necessarily disable the button, for example in a submit form. To disable its behaviour use the disabled property:

<button type="button"class="btn disabled" disabled="disabled">Text</button>

A working fiddle with some examples is available here.
