hi,
In my application, I have one list box, as per the code.

<select Name="Entity" multiple="true" size="">
<logic:iterate id="Price" name="Price" property="basePriceTypePresList">
<logic:iterate id="ent" name="Price" property="ent">
<option value="<bean:write name="ent" property="key"/>">
<bean:write name="ent" property="value"/>
</logic:iterate>
</logic:iterate>
</select>

If i select one option from list box , for time being it display as selected and when i submit this page and again come to this page. That time, i want to show selected item of list how to do this(i.e. highlighting previously selected values), pls suggest

-Gajendra

I am not sure we understand your requirement. You want to submit this page and then reload the same page with the selected values ?

First, "pls" is not a word in the English language.
See:
http://faq.javaranch.com/view?UseRealWords
to find out why using real words is important to us.

Adding the "selected" attribute to your option tag will cause it to be drawn on the page as selected.

The logic:iterate tag is a Struts tag isn't it?
If so, I believe there is a Struts specific way to build select lists.
Moving to our Struts forum where someone will be able to explain how to use those tags better than we could.

If you use either <html:options> or <html:optionsCollection> along with <html:select>, Struts will automatically show the correct item as selected when the page is redisplayed.
