how to make observable a css class with knockout js

Tags: javascript,jquery,html,css,knockout.js

Problem :

this is my code:


   <input type="button" id="btnEnable" value="Enable" />
   <input type="button" id="btnDisable" value="Disable" />
<div id="myDiv">Some Text</div>
<textarea rows="5" id="someText" data-bind="enable: enableText"></textarea>


  background-color: green;
  background-color: red;


$(document).ready(function () {
  $("#myDiv").addClass("enabled").html(" Enabled");

  $("#btnEnable").click(function () {
    $("#myDiv").addClass("enabled").html(" Enabled");
  $("#btnDisable").click(function () {
    $("#myDiv").addClass("disabled").html(" Disabled");
  var viewModel = function(){
    enableText =  ko.observable(true)

when i click on the disable button, the enabled css class is removed. At this point, i need to disable the textarea by KO observable viewModel.

var viewModel = function(){
    enableText =  ko.observable(here must return false when the enable css class is removed)

Solution :

You need the click, css and text bindings :

    var viewModel= function () {
        var self = this;
        self.enableClick = function () {
        self.disableClick = function () {
        // Stores the enable state
        self.enable = ko.observable();
        // Get a text representation of the state 
        self.enableText = ko.computed(function(){
           return self.enable() ? 'Enabled' : 'Disabled';
    ko.applyBindings(new viewModel());

The view :

   <input type="button" data-bind="click: enableClick" value="Enable" />
   <input type="button" data-bind="click: disableClick" value="Disable" />

<div data-bind="text: enableText, css :{'enabled' : enable,'disabled' : enable() != true }">Some Text</div>
<textarea rows="5" id="someText" data-bind="enable: enable"></textarea>
