Hello, everybody,
I need to build dynamic select list within a table.

<td><form method="post" name="" action="">
<select name="mySelect" STYLE="width:80px">
//suppose u ve an array of permission and array of
// value or numeric id matching at respective index

String perm[] =new String[10];
int permid[] =new permid[10];
// some how u fill both the arrays from database or hard-coded
//it depends on you
for (int i=0; i< perm.length; i++){
<option value="<%=permid[i] %>"><%= perm[i] %></option>
