I am trying to get the current ID of a record in a control however the records ID never changes.
This is what I am trying to do:

new HiddenField($name = "GroupID",$title="",$value=$this->record["ID"])

Please help!

i got the same problem too. looks like lots of other people got the same problem: the value is not shown in the html. I am not using SS3.0.2 and i still got the same problem?

i have to use literal field instead of hiddenfield for now
