On Server Validation Error Page Looses $_POST data.

On Server Validation Error Page Looses $_POST data.

I have a page set up to repopulate a form with the post data when the form loads.
I have server side validations set up to validate some fields of the form.

When ever a server validation fails I loose all the posted form data.

I want to keep the form data to repopulate the form so the user does not need to retype all that data after only one field in the server validation steps fail.

First off, why does the $_POST data get cleared when server validation fails? I look at the code and can't see anywhere it would be getting cleared.

Second, how can I keep that form data to replopulate the form?



********* NEVER MIND ********************

I found the bindings for the server side validation details. I can use those to repopulate the fields as needed.


Sorry for the trouble.

Yes, the validated entries bindings should be used to to repopulate the form fields if validation fails. Glad to hear you found the solution.
