PHP Build a Simple PHP Application Integrating with PayPal HTML Forms

help

Finally, we need the form to submit a unique identifier for the order to the process.php file. We need to be able to access that value in an order_id element of the $_POST array, like this: $_POST["order_id"]. For this particular order, the order ID should be 7546. We donโ€™t want this value displayed in the browser. What do we need to add to the form? (Hint: We need to add a new HTML element with three attributes.)

this is what i have but its saying its wrong:

<p>Your order has been created. What flavor of ice cream would you like to add to it?</p>

<form action=process.php method=post>
        <input type="hidden" value="Flavors">
    <input type="hidden" value="order_id"  name="7546">
    <label for="flavor">Flavor</label>
    <select name="flavor" id="flavor">
        <option value="">&#8212; Select &#8212;</option>
        <option value="Vanilla">Vanilla</option>
        <option value="Chocolate">Chocolate</option>
        <option value="Strawberry">Strawberry</option>
        <option value="Cookie Dough">Cookie Dough</option>
    </select>

    <input type="submit" value="Update Order">

</form>

value is the content of what is being submitted, name is how you would access it in the $_POST array. check your order_id line again and see if that meshes with what you have.
