trying to populate hidden field on my JSF form using jQuery

I have some jQuery code whereby I am trying to set the SELECTED option in my dropdown list in a hidden field in the form. Per the code below, when I enter the value in the toAccountNumber field I run a query based on the first 2 characters entered in that field and then select the option that matches in my dropdown.

I want to populated the selected value in a hidden field before I disable the dropdown so that I can pass the hidden field value to my bean however, after the jQuery code completes I went to the view source and the hidden field value was not populated. I am assuming that I should see the value in the hidden field when the jQuery code completes, is that correct?

Any help/direction would be appreciated. Thank you.

BTW, I had used as an example a jQuery user's post on this URL to help me but I'm using blur and not click as the event to act on and it seems like it should work but it is not and I'm assuming I may have a syntax issue(?):

Here is my jQuery code:

I was finally able a value returned from the selectedFacilityCodeID in my dropdown. However, I'm still not able to populate the hidden field in my JSF form.

Here is the modified code but again cannot get the hidden field populated:

Any suggestions? Surely this can't be this difficult. Thanks.

Moved to the JSF forum as the code examples have JSF tags.

My problem was a syntax issue. Finally got it working. The correct syntax was:
