I have a jsf page with a hidden field. In the javascript am setting the value of the hidden component. whenever i submit this, am not getting the value of the hidden field set by javascript. Please let me know how to achieve this. (I want to pass a javascript value to my bean.)

var varName = document.getElementById(formName+":hiddenField1"); // Here hiddenField1 is id attribute of hidden field.

This is how variable be assigned to hidden field in javascript. Cross check your syntax once.
