make sure that element is not disabled/its of the tagName input and type is of text.

Yes its true ,The element Textbox is disabled.  I tried various methods to enable the text box but not able to Enable it.Is the following correct to enable the text box.

((JavascriptExecutor) driver).executeScript("arguments[0].enabled = true", personalinfo_email_textbox);

Try forcing your value into textbox.

((JavascriptExecutor)driver).executeScript("arguments[0].value='[email protected]'",  personalinfo_email_textbox);

Thanks Mayur.   I got the solution to the problem.Yes it was Disabled .That's true.But the reason I could not enable it using

((JavascriptExecutor) driver).executeScript("arguments[0].enabled = true", personalinfo_email_textbox);

was that something is wrong with the locator id "renderForm".I am sure I copied it correctly using inspect element.

Now I tried with name instead of id and its working fine.Both enabling and Clearing.

Thanks Mayur for your answer.
