Subrouting option does not disable text box. Can't Post


I'm trying to customize a module in Webmin. There is a sub that doesn't appear to work as the notes say. I want to disable certain text boxes. I set the value to "1" as the notes state but the text box is still editable. What am I missing? Here is the code block:

=head2 ui_up_textbox(name, value, size, [disabled?], [maxlength], [tags])

Returns HTML for a text input box. The parameters are :

=item name - Name for this input.

=item value - Initial contents for the text box.

=item size - Desired width in characters.

=item disabled - Set to 1 if this text box should be disabled by default.

=item maxlength - Maximum length of the string the user is allowed to input.

=item tags - Additional HTML attributes for the <input> tag.

sub ui_up_textbox
my ($name, $value, $size, $dis, $max, $tags) = @_;
$size = &ui_max_text_width($size);
return "<input class='ui_up_textbox' name=\"".&quote_escape($name)."\" ".
"value=\"".&quote_escape($value)."\" ".
"size=$size ".
($dis ? "disabled=true" : "1").
($max ? " maxlength=$max" : "").
" ".$tags.

This option is the one in question: ($dis ? "disabled=true" : "").
I changed it to: ($dis ? "disabled=true" : "1").

You changed the wrong thing. You need to change the value being passed to the sub, not the sub itself.

I don't use webmin, I'd say there should be a section of the web page that allows you to set that value.
