How to disable / readOnly CRM fields / iframes

Sometimes we need to disable all fields in CRM, so a function could help!
Also, you don't want to diable INPUT/TEXTAREA nodes, because it will become unreadble (gray #808080) if you disable it, so I prefer to set those nodes readOnly. (only INPUT and TEXTAREA support readOnly property!)

setDisabled function
1. set readOnly property for INPUT/TEXTAREA nodes
2. disable other nodes
id: element's Id
ignoreNodes: nodes can be ignored
nodesDisabled: bool, true = set disable/readonly

function setDisabled(id, ignoreNodes, nodesDisabled)
var node, nodes;
nodes = id.getElementsByTagName('*');

var i = nodes.length;
while (i--)
node = nodes[i];
if(node.nodeName && !(node.nodeName.toLowerCase() in ignoreNodes))
if((node.nodeName == "INPUT") || (node.nodeName == "TEXTAREA"))
node.readOnly = nodesDisabled;
node.disabled = nodesDisabled;

/*disable/readonly fields*/
setDisabled(document.getElementById("areaForm"), {table:'', iframe:'', div:'', form:'', col:'', colgroup:'', lable:'', span:'', tbody:'', body:'', tr:'', td:''}, true);

/*disable IFRAME*/
window.setTimeout(iframeDisabled, 3000);
alert("System busy, please try again later!" + err);

function iframeDisabled()
setDisabled(document.frames("IFRAME_1").document.getElementById("mnuBar1"),{}, true);

Nice work. This works great for me. However, can I specify that I want a particular field (in my case, a specific datetime field) to not be disabled/readonly?

Thanks Dubsport, the easy way is just enable this field on the end.

crmForm.all.Your_Field.disabled = false;

Great work, thanks. But I need to make a whole tab a readonly, how can i do this using your function?!

Unfortunately, this function doesn't fully cover the Notes field. If Notes is accessible (your function disables the Notes tab, but it might be necessary to make Notes readable), you will find that each Notes item has onfocus, onclick, ondblclick etc functionality that is not disabled by your function. Also, because you are using a Timeout (which fires only once), when you add a new note by double clicking on the "Click here to enter a new note..." link and saving it, all elements in the Notes IFrame become enabled, because the function is not re-called (it's only on the parent form load, not the IFrame onload).

Anyway, it's a useful function all the same.

Correction to the above post (I'm the same Anonymous that wrote the above!), if there is an existing note and you double click on it, things happen. Double clicking the "Click here to enter a new note..." is properly disabled.

Nice work jim, but just wondering any idea how to disable (not hide) entire section & how to disable just an iFrame?

Many Thanks,
