Hi,

I populate a List the shows the results as:

<c:forEach var="fmlistItem" items="${fmlist}">
<input type="radio" name="fund_manager_code" value="<c:out value="${fmlistItem.managerDescription}" />"/><c:out value="${fmlistItem.managerDescription}" /><br/>
</c:forEach>

The List consists of bean type DecDiv that has five fields but I just show one field fund_manager_code and I
want to pass the fundManagerId of this DecDiv object that was selected....

Now, the item, fmlistItem has another field that is: fundManagerId ...
I need to pass this id as a hidden field from this form... how I do that?

I tried this:(didn' work? for some reason it is alwasy printing out 1)

<c:forEach var="fmlistItem" items="${fmlist}">
<input type="radio" name="fund_manager_code" value="<c:out value="${fmlistItem.managerDescription}" />"/><c:out value="${fmlistItem.managerDescription}" /><br/>
<input type="hidden" name="fund_manager_id" value="<c:out value="${fmlistItem.fundManagerId}" />"/>
</c:forEach>


Could you please let me know how I pass that?

Thanks.
