I wish to get the values from the drop down menu selected by a user from the HTML page and pass this value into my servlet program for processing.

In my servlet program, I've used the getParameter() function to obtain the value from the drop down menu selected.


<SELECT name=Day>
<OPTION value="" selected>- Select -</OPTION>
<OPTION value=Sunday>Sunday</OPTION>
<OPTION value=Monday>Monday</OPTION>
<OPTION value=Tuesday>Tuesday</OPTION>
<OPTION value=Wednesday>Wednesday</OPTION>
<OPTION value=Thursday>Thursday</OPTION>
<OPTION value=Friday>Friday</OPTION>
<OPTION value=Saturday>Saturday</OPTION>
</SELECT>


String days= request.getParameter("Day");
System.out.println("DAY =" +days);

However, the value of the parameter "day" seems empty. May I know what is the correct method of getting the value selected from the drop down menu into my servlet? It did work when I use Javascript functions to extract it though (function getDay() in frmLockOut.html).

The statement looks fine to me. Are you sure that the servlet is executing as a result of the submission of a form that contains the select element?
