Welcome to the forums, @sindiyenbalass. What do you mean by "it's not working"? We need more information - what is not working? Are you getting any errors (Do you have your error reporting turned on?).


Firstly thanks for the quick reply.
my overall concept is that I had three type of user admin, user1, user2
there is like an application form that user 1 submit the form then the user2 can edit only the recommended or not recommended and the rest all hidden values to be shown in the form . if I set this one the input value is editable as like user1.
Thats it.



I did something like this when I faced a similar situation -

<option> Show This <option>
<option disabled> Hide me <option>
<option disabled>  Hide me too<option>

just add the disabled attribute to the options you want to hide and use some css -

select option[disabled] {
    display: none;


Great ! I think its difficult but you make it simple
Thanks a lot


Your Welcome
