Help with hidden field

Hi all,

How to set the value of hidden field from Action class? I have JSP and Action class defined for the JSP Page. I havent defined the Form class for it.
Is it possible to set value for hidden filed and retrieve it on submit without having Form class defined for JSP Page?

without having Form class defined for JSP Page

This is a little confusing. In struts form classes are defined for Actions not JSP pages. There's a html:hidden tag which can be easily used for your requirement...

You can always get values directly from the request, but... I'm not so sure that I would.
I agree. Here's the link:
