Disabling and Re-Enabling Dynamic Form Elements with JQuery


It's probably easiest to view this fiddle: <a href="http://jsfiddle.net/Ahfm7/4/" rel="nofollow">http://jsfiddle.net/Ahfm7/4/</a>

Only the agent and extension values in the dropdown have been implemented at this time.

I have encountered a couple of bugs I was hoping someone could help figure out.


The first is when you add a new row of dropdowns without selecting anything in the first and proceed to select an option in the second one, the form can be submitted.

</li> <li>

Likewise if you pick an option in the first row, then add another and remove it, the submit button remains disabled.

</li> </ul>

I was just wondering if anyone knows how to fix this?


I started cleaning up the code. I cut the 700+ lines of JS down to something more manageable for SO, but you should be able to understand the general idea.

In general:

<ul><li>Avoid re-querying the DOM by caching jQuery objects</li> <li>Stay <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don%27t_repeat_yourself" rel="nofollow">DRY</a> by writing more, smaller functions which contain commonly reused logic (such as the enableSubmitButton function I added)</li> <li>Don't forget to use var</li> </ul>


I finally almost have a complete working solution but with one bug:

Thanks for your advice.
