    How to refresh a page and get the last selection of a data

    Hi ,

    I am developing a webpage using LAMP where the programming language is PERL.

    My page has a table in it and above the table columns there is drop-down which filters the table data. This filter is implemented by Javascript. If I choose 'all' from the drop-down it shows the entire table data and if other
    values are selected then only those relevant data it shows. By default if not
    selected anything from drop-down, it shows all the data of the table.

    The problem is , if I refresh the page then irrespective of what value was selected from drop-down, it shows the default data only. How can I implement the feature so that even if I refresh it will bring the table-data depending on the last selected value from the drop-down.

    Please help.

    Since your dropdowns and filtering are being altered/controlled by javascript, then you're looking for a javascript solution, not a Perl solution.

    I'm not a javascript expert so I can't help much in that area. One possibility would be to have javascript update some cookie info and use that info when the page loads and constructs the dropdowns.
