Hi Every one,

Is there any way to hide the options in a drop down.

As an example, I have a code as


In this I want to hide option STATE. I have tried display property of style (Please have a look at below code), its working in Firefox Mozilla but not in IE.

<OPTION style = "display:none">STATE</OPTION>

Thanks in advance.
