Your HashMap doesn't return a HashMap, it returns a String.  So cast the result of searchHash.get to (String) .

you don't really need to cast it at all.

  System.out.println("value:"+searchHash.get(selectedfield));

Tanks for u r response mrcoffee365.
I am not following you, I am sorry.

but

searchHash.get(selectedfield));  ---> returning String

I want this to be type casted to HashMap , because I have to pass thi into a function, and that function accepts

HashMap only

> because I have to pass thi into a function, and that function accepts

then just pass your hashmap, eg.

myMethod(searchHash);
