I have a basic question in HTML.

I have 10 rows of data with a radio button beside each one of it.When user selects one of those rows with radio button , in addition to the radio button value i have to pass two hidden values ,corresponding to that row.

right now when ever i select a radio button value , i am able to pull the radio button value fine , but it keep giving me the first row value for hidden value.

any idea?

Do you have unique field names/IDs for those hidden values? Are they any chance named the same thing for each row?

Is this on a POST of a form?
