View Full Version : keep the values when it redirect the same page

I have a question.

I made the create the new user form.

<script language="javascript">

function submitFrm()
function Validate()
var username = document.submitform.username.value;
var password = document.submitform.password.value;
var email = document.submitform.email.value;
var str = ""

if (username=="")
if (password=="")
{str=str + "\nPassword";}
if (email=="")
{str=str + "\nE-Mail";}

if (username=="" || password=="" || email=="")
{ alert("Please Fill out the following field:\n\n" + str);}
else {return submitFrm();}

<form name="submitform" method="post" action="" OnSubmit="Validate()">
<table border=2>
<tr><td>First Name:</td><td><input type="text" name="fname" size="32" /></td></tr>
<tr><td>Last Name:</td><td><input type="text" name="lname" size="32" /></td></tr>
<tr><td>Sex:</td><td><input type="radio" name="sex" value="Male">Male</input>
<input type="radio" name="sex" value="Female">Female</input></td></tr>
<tr><td>Username:</td><td><input type="text" name="username" size="32" /></td></tr>
<tr><td>Password:</td><td><input type="password" name="password" size="32" /></td></tr>
<tr><td>E-Mail:</td><td><input type="text" name="email" size="32" /></td></tr>
<tr><td></td><td><center><input type="submit" value="Submit" /><input type="reset" value="reset" /></center></td></tr>
if request.querystring("new")="exists" then
Response.Write("Username already exists in database.")
end if

It works fine, but I want to keep back the Firstname, lastname, sex, and e-mail values. How can I keep the values once it redirect the newuser page.

Because, if there is one invalide value, then it will redirect the same page and remove all values I input.

How can I keep firstname, lastname, sex, and e-mail values?

I don't have Windows now to test it but you can try:

<tr><td>First Name:</td><td>
<input type="text" name="fname" size="32" value="<% = Request.QueryString("fname") %>" />

I tried it.

It still give out the empty field when it redirect the same page.
It cannot keep the value.

If you are using several pages then storing the info in Session variables may be best.
