Hi folks ,
Im trying to use a dropdown as part of the html form in the page im creating.The dropdown works in the following manner--
When I click or change the values in the dropdown the page reloads and the selected value is retained (using JavaScript), (expected behavior).However, when I submit the page using the submit button , I try to pass the value of the selected value(from the dropdown) through a script so that the value of the dropdown is passed correctly for DB operations, however the value is always set to -1.
and as result im not able to insert or update or perform any operations that occure after i press the submit button.
Im placing the code snippet from my jsp that I use for generating the dropdown and setting the selected value in a hidden field.
File:JSP

Servlet , where the value from dropdown is obtained and used for further processing.

here the value of setDtID is set to -1 , and not the dropdown selection ,every time I perform a submit . Any clue as to why this could be happening? Thanks for your time . Any help would be appreciated.
