I'm sure this is simple, but eludes me.

I have one text box. After I submit the page -
document.demo.method="get";
document.demo.submit();

I wish to retain the value in the textbox after the page is submitted. The page is an asp page and is submitted to iteslef.

TQ

This can be done best using ASP, not JavaScript.

I don't know ASP, but it would look something like this:

<input type="text" name="the_textbox" value="<% however_you_reference_the.get_variable %>">

Hi

Because you are submitting the form using get you need to use request.querystring

so the value property for your text field would be

value="<%=Request.QueryString("[the textfield name]")%>"
