Keeping Text Visible...sort of

This one's a little obtuse but let me try to explain:

On a form I have a question to which the user clicks Yes/No...forget No for the moment...

when Yes is clicked, text (which seems invisible before click, white on white background) underneath the question suddenly appears, required input in red, non-required in black...so far so good...

problem is that if the user pages forward, then back, the text is gone but responses are still there...is there a way I can have the "appearing" text stay, almost, naively, like the Yes is invisibly clicked? Hope this is clear enough.

Thanks,
Ron

What language?

You might have the 'back' button generate a routine that the "Yes" response would...

Ew - probably can't help you then. :( Sorry

But I would 'think' you'd have something along the same lines as posted before.

So that if 'yes' is clicked - have it jump to a "Yes" subroutine and if 'Back" is clicked, perform the same routine...?

Add a flag to the form object telling whether the "yes" button has been pressed or not.

Move the code for "showing" the text out of the "yes" button handler and into it's own function.

Call that function from the yes handler and set the flag.  Call that function from the "form show" function the back button should invoke when the flag is set.

Hope this helps.
