Index.php
------------

$myDoor = new door();
$myDoor->SetDoorType('single');


now, on step 2.php (or any other page)  I need $myDoor.

In this example, $myDoor->GetDoorType(); *SHOULD* return "single" no matter what page I am on.

Thanks!

The way to do this is to save everything in session variables.  This way for this login all the variables are saved across the pages

you can start your sessions with
session_start();
at the start of the page.

at the end of the page using $myDoor do something like

$_SESSION['myDoor'] = serialize($myDoor);

then when you want to use it again you would do

$myDoor = unserialize($_SESSION['myDoor']);

of cource checking if $_SESSION['myDoor'] exists

http://au.php.net/serialize

serialize and unserialize save the data that is in myDoor into a format that is saveable on disk - unserialize reinflates the data back into a class

oh,

an you need to include the definition for your class before you unserialize - else it does not know how to treat the data

One last thing, I have an open question with you. It's the LAT LONG thing.

I will be unable to test that for a few more weeks, as I am really busy on another project. If I give you the points, can you bookmark it so we can revisit it later sometime?
