hidden Variables

Posted on 2006-06-26
Last Modified: 2010-03-31
I am supposed to write a form in struts. The issue is I have to populate some of the values  of this form into other form using hidden variables. I am not aware of how to use it thoe I know the theory behind the hidden variables. I will be pleased if anyone could show me a sample code of few lines, so I can get how things work.
