I have this code:

then inside of doGet for my servlet i have this:

The output is always null...
what the heck am i doing wrong? I want it to say light if the user chose light, dark if they pick dark etc ...

Your method attributes indicates the HTTP request is of type POST.
You should write the above logic in doPost() but not in doGet().
The default http request is GET.
