HTML | DOM Input URL readOnly Property

The DOM Input URL readOnly Property is used to set or return whether a URL Field should be read-only or not. It means that a user can not 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.

Syntax:

  • It is used to return the readOnly property.
    urlObject.readOnly
  • It is used to Set the readOnly property.
    urlObject.readOnly = true|false
  • Property Values:

    • true: It defines that url field is read only.
    • false: It defines that url field is not read only.

    Return Value: It returns a boolean value which represent the URL field is read only or not.
