hey saurabh,

unfortuneatly the only way that i can think of how you can do what you have said is via using some form of dynamic language such as javascript, php, or coldfusion.

maybe you would yield more results if you tried posting this in the javascript / ajax / dhtml section of the forums.

good luck mate

This can be achieved by using JavaScript.

For example just give a function along with the select in first section like

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <select name="optionone" onClick="checkoptiontwo()">
Write the JS like this

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2. function checkoptiontwo()
  3. {
  4. if(document.getElementById("optionone").value==2)
  5. {
  6. document.getElementById("mbbs").disabled=true;
  7. }
  8. }
Don't forget to give each option different names(eg: name="mbbs") like bca,mba,etc and also different values. This is not the exact code. But I think you will get an idea.
