Hello everyone, I have a little bit problem using this selectOneMenu,

I successfully load a list of items to this selectOneMenu component, I use this kind of code

in my jsf page:

in my

My problem is, for example, Today is February 7, I want to set the selectOneMenu component to select the value 7 instead of starting to 1 since it has a value of 1 to 31. Thats all.

Thanks guys.

I have not tried this out yet, but you should be able to set the value attribute of the selectonemenu component when the page is loaded from a separate attribute in your backing bean that returns the current day.

I've had an awful hard time with select lists and integer values. I convert the integer to string and back. Try to change the code to

public String getCurrentDay() {
return String.valueOf(currentDay);

public void setCurrentday (String currentDay) {
this.currentDay = Integer.valueOf(currentDay);
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
