Hi, Does anyone know I can achieve the following: <html ption value="Default" SELECTED>Default</html ption> I know that SELECTED is not supported in Struts, so was wondering what the alternative approach is. I basically have a drop-down of countries and what to pre-select a particular one. Sounds simple? I wish!! Regards, Andy UK [ August 22, 2003: Message edited by: Andy Deighton ]

The "property" attribute of the <html:select> tag indicates a property of a bean or ActionForm which hold the "selected" value for your drop down. Let's say your ActionForm has a property "book", and you have a JSP page where the user is supposed to select a book from a drop down.
If your ActionForm contains the value "Brave New World" for the property "book", then when your JSP renders, "Brave New World" will be SELECTED in your drop down. HTH
