HTML <textarea> readonly Attribute

HTMLWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The readonly attribute of the <textarea> element is used to set a textarea as readonly. The visitor cannot change the text in the textarea if it is set as readonly.

However, visitor can copy that content.

Following is the syntax −

<textarea readonly>

Let us now see an example to implement the readonly attribute of the <textarea> element −

Example

 Live Demo

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<h2>Interview Questions</h2>
<p>Q1</p>
   <textarea rows="6" cols="70" placeholder="Why do you want go for the Editor Job Profile? (100 words)">
   </textarea>
   <p>Q2</p>
   <textarea rows="6" cols="70" placeholder="Do you have any previous publishing experience? (100 words)">
   </textarea>
   <p>Guidelines to appear for interview:</p>
   <textarea rows="6" cols="70" readonly>
      The interviewee should reach at 10AM with the certificates.
   </textarea>
</body>
</html>

Output

In the above example, we have 3 textarea −

<p>Q1</p>
<textarea rows="6" cols="70" placeholder="Why do you want go for the Editor Job Profile? (100 words)">
</textarea>
<p>Q2</p>
<textarea rows="6" cols="70" placeholder="Do you have any previous publishing experience? (100 words)">
</textarea>
<p>Guidelines to appear for interview:</p>
<textarea rows="6" cols="70" readonly>
   The interviewee should reach at 10AM with the certificates.
</textarea>

One of this textarea is set as readonly, therefore users won’t be able to add any text in it −

<textarea rows="6" cols="70" readonly>
   The interviewee should reach at 10AM with the certificates.
</textarea>
