Passing loop variable to drop down menu

Hi,

<select name="day">
 <%
       for(i=0;i<=31;i++){
%>
System.out.println("<option value=' + i + '>" + i + "</option>");
<%

%>
<option value=<%=i%>" <%=i%> "</option> //called JSP expressions

<%          
System.out.println("<option value=' + i + '>" + i + "</option>");

}
%>
</select>

you ca use response.sendRedirect(url)
response.encodeURL
you can also use <jsp:forward> tag too....

HOpe this helps.......
CHeers!

Remember not to use <%System.out.println()%>, - this will print to the console.
If you want the output to appear in the browser, use only <%out.println()%>

Personally I would do like this:

<select name="day">
<%
for (int i=0; i<32; i++){
   out.println("<option value=\""+i+"\">"+i+"</option>";
}
%>
</select>

I find it simpler without all those <%%> flying around ;-)

Thanx JNic,  n one more thing to ask..... As in ASP we use Month(Now), Day(Now) and Year(Now) to get the current day, month or a year. What would be the alternatives of them used in JSP?
JNicCommented:
Fx:

<%@page import="java.util.Calendar"%>

<%
Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
int day=cal.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);
int month=cal.get(Calendar.MONTH); // note that 0=january, 1=february aso. (really stupid!)
int year=cal.get(Calendar.YEAR);
%>

Today: <%=year+"-"+month+1+"-"+day%> // Just an example print

Regards,

Nic
