     I have a combobox which have the proprety disabled=true

     I open firebug, select the combobox and delete the property disabled=disabled

    Now I can select other values from the combobox using the keybord arrows (up and down). Values that I am not supposed to have access to.

    Is there a fix or something that I need to do ?

    Hello Iheb,

    I am afraid that indeed such manipulations are feasible at the client's side, however, we cannot grantee and prevent this. Many many different operations may be performed with the developer tool at the client - from changes in the layout to enabling/disabling specific elements from the DOM.

    This is why, this scenario falls out of the support scope. You can ensure however that the proper business logic is kept in your project at server-side, by implementing the needed validations.

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items
