hello there

how do i assign values in struts-html property with the javascript var attribute. For example how do i assign the value in the below javascript var attribute,

my struts-html tag is " html:hidden property="paymentAmount" "

Now how do i assign the paymentAmount value with the grandTotal variable.
When i was using the input attribute in the normal html it was working fine.
Please help me regarding this matter.

Try using the below piece of code.
var grandTotal = some-value;
document.getElementsByName("paymentAmount")[0].value = grandTotal;

Alternatively, if you have the property associated with a form then you can write,
document.forms[0].paymentAmount.value = grandTotal;

the solution you gave is not working. The value is not getting stored into the form bean. As i when i retrieve the value from the logger only the default value is getting posted. Any idea regarding this, any suggestion. Please help me.
