so you want to do read-only list after submitting data to action and I am thinking you're referring to the JSP after your action return "SUCCESS"

so you pushing a list onto ValueStack and you want this list to be read-only? is that correct?

if your JSP is just displaying the list and not doing anything besides displaying the list, isn't that itself "read-only"?

It's hard to answer your question when you're not giving more descriptions of what your action is doing and include some actual code

OK this is the scenario. I have a jsp page which use to edit records in the database.and also there are search and edit buttons to retrieve and edit data in the data base.
first I select a value from the drop down list and also give relevant values to text fields as search key words.then click the search button.after retrieve a record from the data base I want to edit the retrieved record but the value in the drop down list is a primary key of the database table.so I want to do read only the drop down list after retrieving the record.
that's all

I think I'm missing something fundamental. A drop-down list is a UI element - it and its content are not in any way "editable". So what do you mean by "editing a drop-down list"?

As an aside, you should never present raw DB key values in the UI, either hidden or out in the open. Especially if you then send them to the server you need to encrypt them, lest the client changes the values maliciously.

no no I don't need to edit the drop down list.see the attached image then you can get a clear idea.

I'm using same UI to retrieve data and edit that data. so the list is the primary key of that particular database table.I want to do read only the list after getting data to the fields.then user can edit data fields but not the list that means primary key.

Can't you achieve this by making those two dropdown's read only?

I still don't understand what you mean by "read-only list". In the screenshot you posted, which field is currently editable that you want to make read-only? And if you want an input field to be read-only, why make it an input field to begin with?

Let's take a step back. You posted screenshots that show two lists: "Underwriter branch code" and "Risk category code". Those are UI elements, and as such can't be altered by the user. So what is the list you're talking about? How is it editable?

I have a drop down list. and I want to change it like a readonly field by clicking a button.(after clicking the button the list should be able to submit it's value.)
