Hi,

I populate a dropdownlist with values then based on userrole I would to:
 - set a selectedvalue and "lock" (readonly = true)  OR
 - give the user the ability to select any value of the list

However unlike the textbox the dropdownlist does not have a readonly property, hence I could go and change the datasource behind to reflect the selectable values, however that would be the LONG way round, was just hoping someone has a -- quickfix (lock, readonly or something)?

Need this rather quick..
Thanks!

Ok, I simply set    enabled = false   and that way can still pull the value off her, seems to be working.... guess i should have thought about that earlier :)
