To disable an Input at runtime, do the following:

  Input1_contents.disabled = true

To highlight an Input control with an error (and return it to normal):

  $("#Input1").addClass("has-error")
  $("#Input1").removeClass("has-error")

To hide and show the Help text:

  $("#Input1 .help-block").addClass("hidden")
  $("#Input1 .help-block").removeClass("hidden")


Popovers and Tooltips are supported.
