Disable all fields of a form

Written byPhuoc Nguyen

It's easy to disable a particular HTML input or button element by using the `disabled` attribute. The following piece of code demonstrates a simple signing in form that consists of two disabled inputs:
<input type="text" placeholder="Username" disabled /> <input type="password" placeholder="Password" disabled />
There is the other way that you don't have to apply the `disabled` attribute to fields one by one.
Instead, you can use the `fieldset` element to organize the input. Using the `disabled` attribute to the `fieldset` will disable all input belonging to it:
<fieldset disabled>

<input type="text" placeholder="Username" />
<input type="password" placeholder="Password" />
