Store and Set entire form in cookie Help!

Store and Set entire form in cookie Help!

Hi I wonder if someone can help me because I am quite confused, with the cookie toolkit.

I have read the instructions/help file but it doesnt seem to make things clear for me.

I have a form on a page containing 3 list boxes (page1). My users select items from the 3 list boxes and press a search button. The found list is displayed on the same page (page1) under the list boxes. The user then selects an item from the list and is then redirected to another page (page2). Once they have completed editing their work on page2 they have to click on a 'Previous' link, 'javascript' to return to page1. Unfortunately for them they have to perform the same search each time they return to page1.

So what I am after or was hoping to do, was store the search data from the 3 list boxes and possible the list data in a cookie so that each time they return to page1, the data is sitting there, waiting for them to select the next item of the list. If they then decide to perform another search on page1, then the new data is stored in the cookie once again. It is probable so simple but I cant figure out how to do it!

So far I have managed to get the 'Store entire form in cookie' upon Submit on to the form.
I can also see in the WA CookieToolkit List, 'Set entire form from cookie'. Which sounds like the option to use.

But how do I get it to 'Set the entire form from cookie' when the page initially loads and thats if data is stored in it.

Your guidance would be much appreciated
