What is disabled Attribute in HTML <textarea> Tag?
As the name of the disabled attribute suggests, this attribute is used when we want to disable the access to a field created via the <textarea> element.
Applying this attribute to a <textarea> element will turn that field into gray and there’s no way for users to enter any value into it after that.
Note: the field still gets displayed and users can see it, however, they can’t use it to enter data.
