Hash Tables

How can I get the key value out of this hashmap along with the values.  Currently I am trying to set the values myself but this is not working very well.

Hashtable h = com.mycompany.catalog.PaymentTypes.getTypeList();

int x=0;
Enumeration e = h.elements();
int paymentValue = 0;
int baseValue = 999;
while (e.hasMoreElements()) {
     x += 1;
     paymentValue = baseValue + x;
     cboPaymentType.insert(e.nextElement().toString (),String.valueOf(paymentValue),x);

//returning object
public static Hashtable getTypeList() {
     Hashtable h = new Hashtable();
     for (int i = 1000; i<1011; i++){
     return h;

Enumeration e = h.keys() will return the keys

Hashtable h = com.mycompany.catalog.PaymentTypes.getTypeList();

for (Enumeration e = h.keys(); e.hasMoreElements()) {
   Object key = e.nextElement(); // get the key
   Object value = h.get(key); // get the value

h.keys() returns an enumeration of the keys. You can loop over it and read the keys one by one.
h.get(key) returns the value corresponding to the key 'key'.

I could not get the loop to work but knowing the syntax of
Object key = e.nextElement();
Object value = h.get(key);

There is a mistake in my for loop. You need to place a semi-colon in it:

Hashtable h = com.mycompany.catalog.PaymentTypes.getTypeList();

for (Enumeration e = h.keys(); e.hasMoreElements();) {
  Object key = e.nextElement(); // get the key
  Object value = h.get(key); // get the value
