Good question... I dunno what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..
Thank you both for your reply..
No, I am not trying to do what you are describing..
I'll try and explain it on the simplist terms (please note: uploading a file is irrevelant in this case)..
I have three forms: form1, form2, and form3. On form1, I am posting to form3 (i.e. all text field values are sent to form3)..
However, to finish entering form1, the user must access form2 via a hotlink (it doesn't really matter why, it's just important to note that they are leaving form1). When the user does whatever they need to do on form2, they will press a return button to go back to form1..
Here lies the problem. When the user is taken back to form1, the values are cleared..
I want these values to remain, but since I am not submitting the form, I don't see how to do so...
Sounds like you're looking for.
; without using cookies here, your best bet is to 1)pass any user-entered form values on form1 to hidden fields on form2 and 2)script them back onto form1 when the user returns (using the url of the 'return' button) - if I'm following this correctly. How? Use the url's query string. Since HTTP is stateless, there aren't a lot of client-side options; this is a useful one to retain form data (although Netscape tends to retain it even when you don't want it to). For more, see:.
(particularly the subhead.
Passed Data Can Be Used to Fill Forms, Too..
In IE5 you can use the userdata behavior to store local data..
For more information..
Outside IE5, you can either set a cookie, or use the search property of the URL...
