I need to hide disabled drop down. The problem is I have I have 2 variables if the drop down is disabled i ma using the hidden form variable but the drop down itself need to be hidden

if I do this it probably taking the hidden form variable.

$("#triggerSeed2").parent().hide();

the reason I doing it this way because under certain condition the drop down will be disabled, but other fields are still using the value from it. I thought if I disable the drop down and enable the hidden form variable that will work and it does but i need a way of hiding the drop down

Doesn't matter if it is hidden or disabled you can still get the selected value from it.
Anything other than that I am not understanding.

Post your code. There is no reason you cannot hide it. Maybe you are targeting the wrong element.
Here's a simple example.

To show/hide: document.getElementById("myCombo").style.display="inline"/"none";
To enable/disable: document.getElementById("myCombo").disabled=true/false;

instead of hiding the parent

$("#triggerSeed2").parent().hide();

try giving the parent an ID and hide it directly

$("#triggerSeed2_parent").hide();
