inputHidden causing conversion problems

I have a hiddenInput field for each row in a datatable so I can restore default values to a date field, but as soon as I add this hidden field I need for my javascript function to work I get conversion errors! I am assuming this is because the hidden input field is trying to set it's value to the backing object - but I don't want to do this! Is there any way to just set a hidden value somewhere for each row of a datatable but not have it try to submit the value? Thanks in advance!
I agree. Here's the link:
