Hi I have a diabled dropdown(formfield) in sharepoint. When I submit the form on postback it is loosing it's values. I disable it on client-side using JQuery.

My case is I want to disable a section on form, so using Jquery i apply css readonly on textboxes and add attribute .attr("disabled","disabled") to dropdown.

After post back I see blank dropdown(disabled). May be it has values but Index is set to zero. It should retain the first time binded  selection as form is in Edit Mode.

I guess dropdownlist value is not posted on server, since it is disabled, that's why it gets lost.
I would advise to use server side code to change FormField mode to Display.
