The DOM Input tel readOnly property is used to set or return whether the tel field should be read-only or not. It means that a user cannot modify or changes the content already present in a particular element (However, a user can tab to it, highlight it, and copy the text from it) whereas a JavaScript can be used to change the read-only value and make the input field editable.


It is used to return the readOnly property. 


It is used to set the readOnly property. 

telObject.readOnly = true|false

  • true: It defines that the input tel field is read-only.
