Modifying Attributes

Hi There

I am sort of following along with Andrew Chalkley on the JQuery course and I am utilising his ideas on my own site.

I have an submit button with a class of submit

and I am using the following code to disable the submit button

    var $submit = $("input.submit");
    function requiredFilledIn(){
        if(true) $submit.attr("disabled","disabled");
        else $submit.removeAttr("disabled");

        // Check the required fields

        // This will check for a valid email


However it does not seem to be having any effect. Can someone tell me where I am going wrong please.


Take a look at your opening and closing brackets within the function.

You should have curly braces around the result of each conditional.
