Question on using jQuery's .attr AFTER form is submitted

I am using jQuery 1.4.3. In the following function I am setting a dropdown list to a DISABLED attribute as follows:



The issue is that when the form is SUBMITTED, the dropdown list becomes ENABLED for some reason if there is an error on the form. I need the dropdown list to maintain the DISABLED attribute AFTER the form is submitted. Am I doing something wrong in the code above that would alter the attribute after the form is submitted?

I tried creating a .submit function to validate a multitude a fields in my form but I don't know how to get the attribute of the dropdown list. Can someone please tell me how to do this?

Any suggestions/direction would be appreciated. Thank you.

After the form is submitted, the page ceases to exist. I assume that after the servlet that processes the form is finished, that the same JSP page is displayed again?

If so, then you are getting a fresh page from the server that has nothing whatsoever to do with what went on the previous time that the page was displayed.
