Retain form input when server side validation fails

Retain form input when server side validation fails

I have a form with a captcha security filed that is validated using WA Server Validations.

When a user puts in an incorrect security code, the server validates correctly but only part of the form that the user has filled in is retained.

How do I retain all the information so that the user does not have to input the information again, with the exception of the captcha field obviously.

Attached is a screen shot of the form showing that only the top 4 fields have retained the information.

Also attached is a copy of the page.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

In the bindings panel, there is a bindings group titled "WA Validated Entries"

There will be a binding in the WA Validated entries group for each form element.

This will contain the value originally posted when the form fails validation.

Select the form element in design view, then in the property inspector, click the lightning bolt next to initial value. Select the corresponding binding from the WA Validated Entries group.
