I'm being asked to update a JSP that displays records in table format, where one column is to be a drop down list form element.


Here's the situation:
There are 6 Types.
There can be 0, 1 or more Conflicts per Type.

Goal: to display a list of records under each type.

For example: if there are 3 records for Type 1, and 2 records for Type 2, the display should be:

TypeRelationStatus
1Brother A
1SisterA
1MotherT
2FatherT
2Brother I

The form element here is the Status field. It is a selection list; one can select from values to change the status.

How can I assign unique form element names to that field.
I first tried 2 for loops:
1 loop for the 6 types
The 2nd inner loop for the number of records per type.
I called the form element name status1, status2, etc�
The problem was when it was time for the Type 2 (2nd iteration in outer loop), the form element name started again at status1, status2, etc�



Can anyone help?

This is simple. You can get the unique status names by making the changes as given in bold.
