How do you show more than one field of a drop down list eg. I have a flight collection and i want to be able to select the flightID from a drop down list while also being able to see the destination and departure airports.
I am currently using a <html:select> and <html ptions> but cant seem to figure it out, please help

Since the <select> control only allows you to display a single string, you will have to concatenate several pieces of data into a single field. For example, if the bean you're using to populate the options has a getLabel() method that's currently showing "1234", you need to modify it so that it produces: "flt: 1234 depart:Los Angeles arrive: New York City".
