Drupal 7 Use Form Stored Values

Sorry for the question but I'm still relatively new to PHP. :)

I'm using Examples For Developers code: form_example_wizard.inc

to create a multi-page registration wizard.

Stored values are passed in step_information from each page. I'd like to use a couple of values from the first page to populate data on the second page. How do I extract specific items from the store_values array(i.e name)?

Stored values are stored in each step using the $form_state. To get the "name" entered in on the first form the code is as follows:

$myname = $form_state['step_information']['1']['stored_values']['name'];

Open in new window

Any other value is easily extracted by changing the value name and/or step number (here it's 1).
