  • Last Updated : 05 Nov, 2019

The :read-write selector is used to select an element (such as an input text) that is editable by the user. The elements with no readonly and disabled attribute are defined as readable and writable.

Example 1:




<!DOCTYPE html>

        <style>
            input {
                min-width: 25em;
                padding: 10px;
            }
              
            /* CSS property for Firefox only */
            input:-moz-read-write { 
                background: green;
                color: white;
            }
              
            input:read-write { 
                background: green;
                color: white;
            }
        </style>
    </head>
    <body style = "text-align:center">
          
        <h2>
