Help with JavaScript Drop Down Box

Hi

I have a drop down box in a table and when the user adds a new row i want to make this row read only and make the new row editable. i have this working fine usin readonly but this is not working for the html-select field i have.

I have tried making this select box disabled instead of read only but then my data is not saved in the submit of the form. I am also unable to call a fucntion to enable this in the submit of the form as this is in a tile and would break my other tiles on the page. Is there anyway to stop a user from changing the selected value in the box without disabling it?

Thanks
