Saving information on the screen during a page reload
Posted on 2004-09-23
This problem is hard to explain, but here goes:
I have a few textboxes on my page that a user can enter data in. There is also other content on the page. This other content can be changed by clicking links/submitting forms, causing the page to reload with different content. When this happens, the textboxes and the user's content should not change.
Since there are various ways of reloading the page, is there a generic way to somehow save the text in the textboxes, and then reload this data when the page reloads?
This is a difficult problem to solve because our application is very large and hasn't taken the problem into account.
Thanks in advance.
Please let me know if I need to clarify/use an example.
