Struts Question

Hi Guys...I have a question regarding struts. I've got a tabs page with different information on it. At the bottom of each tab, i placed a button that will submit to a certain dispatch action. I need to get the 'key' for the information on the tab to modify in the action. There is a hidden variable declared inside the form. I.E. :

When I extract the 'partyKey' parameter from the request, the value inside it is: "<%=key%>" and not the "person4" value I expected. How can I replace the value in the tag with something that's everchaning on the page?
I appreciate all comments.
