    You can also use the .prop() function.

    A simple

    $("#submit-button").prop('disabled', true);
    $("#submit-button").prop('disabled', false);

    will also do then.

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";

There's a whole bunch of content on CSS-Tricks.
