In my JSP page I have the following :


<ww:select name="encoderType" value="encoderTypeId" list="encoderList" listKey="encoderId" listValue="encoderName"/>

This works in that it outputs a drop down list.

I select a item but it is not being returned.

As I understand it value="encoderTypeId" is my data holder I set it to 1 so that it always defaults to the first item.

But if I select the next item it should return the next id.

Im my calling Action I have

private String encoderTypeId;

with my getter an setter

public void setEncoderTypeId(String encoderTypeId) {
this.encoderTypeId = encoderTypeId;
}

public String getEncoderTypeId() {
return encoderTypeId;
}

Is my understanding wrong is encoderTypeId not the correct holder for the return value.

When I debug getEncoderTypeId is called when setting the default id for the drop down, but then is not called again on the save.

Thanks for any help

Sorted

in <ww:select name="encoderTypeValue" value="encoderTypeId" list="encoderList" listKey="encoderId" listValue="encoderName"/>

name="encoderTypeValue is the return value holder
