Question: Difference between "disable" and "readonly" in form components?
What is the difference between “disable” and “readonly” in form components, like q-input, q-select, etc.?
I’m aware of the visual differences (e.g. “disabled” icon shows at mouseover for disabled fields).
But what other differences exist? I would expect that e.g. for a q-select, I can open the pulldown menu with options, if readonly (without ability to change the selected options), and I can’t open the options pulldown if disabled…but a short test seems like I can’t open the options pulldown in either case.
So I’m not sure when to use one vs. the other, and why the two exist.
it mainly useful in forms,
an input with (readonly) is just not editable, but gets sent on submit.
while (disabled) input isn’t editable and isn’t sent on submit.
@mickey58 AFAIK, readonly text can be selected, disabled can’t.
