If you're using ObjectChoiceField then there is an array of objects that passed as a parameter to a constructor.


There are several ways to set the value to ObjectChoiceField instance.


Via constructor (use initialIndex parameter in one of constructors, or pass an object reference from the objects array).


Via method: setSelectedIndex(int index);
