I have an XSLTListView (RoleAssignments list) web part that is connected to another XSLTListview (Authorities list) web part which provides a filtered listing based on the selected role. I need to get the ID value for the selected item but I don't know how to do this since there is not a check box. Could someone please point me in the right direction?

If you're using a Web Part connection, isn't the ID of the selected item passed back to the page on the Query String?

No the ID isn't passed unless you construct the query string in another field via a workflow

I have been trying to do this as well and spent a fair bit of time on this. If I find an elegant solution I will update this post.
