This week, we're updating our course layouts and descriptions. Presentation and materials always gently change over time, but just occasionally there's a need to make a step change to clear out some of the old and roll in the new. That's now happening - but over a long and complex site it's not instant and you'll see sections of the site changing up to and including 19th September.

Retain the data on "Back Button " click of Browser

HI....I have 2 drop down lists of which the second is dependent on the selection of first one. I have a "Continue" button which redirects to next page. When on next page I click the back button of the browser I wish the data I have selected to be retained . Please suggest me a way for this....

Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 6 February 2008
The browser's back button overrides anything you have filled in ... I would suggest that you use Javascript to lt the server know when you change your pulldown.

A question - "why?".  I don't expect your users will anticipate this unusual behaviour if you program it!
