Disabling a Radio Button

Question: How do I disable a radio button in a form (making it not selectable)?

Answer: To make a radio button not selectable, in the button's INPUT tag you can use an onClick event handler like this:

<INPUT type="radio" name="myButton" value="theValue"
onClick="this.checked=false;
alert('Sorry, this option is not available!')">
In the example below, the "Courier delivery" option is disabled. Try it now - you'll get an alert box with the text Sorry, this option is not available!
Delivery method (choose one):
download
regular mail
courier delivery
