"modify info" button on multi-page form

"modify info" button on multi-page form

Hi Jason (and everybody),

In the last thread I asked about how to create "confirm.php" page for contact/order form.
Thanks to the advice, I'm nearly done with the process.

And I realized that I needed one more thing to work out.
On "confirm.php" page, I made two buttons; "submit" and "modify information" (so one can go back to order form with info already typed in and modify.)

"submit" is working just fine, but I need to know how to make "modify" button.
Just by linking the button back to the order form page, obviously the typed in info is all gone.
How can I add a behavior to make this button work?

Thank you for your help as always.

on the confirm page, add a set session value for each form element.

Open the server behaviors panel and click the plus button. Select eCart -> General -> Set Session Value

set the trigger to any form post.

Click the lightning bolt next to value and select one of the checkout form elements. Set the name of the session to the same as the name of the selected form element.

on the checkout page, select each form element, on the property inspector, click the lightning bolt next to initial value and select the corresponding session variable.

Hi Jason,

Thank you for your reply.

I'm a bit confused in following your direction, so can I confirm about what you've mentioned?

1. My order form goes like this;

Order Form (extended version of contact form, used CSS Form Builder, not eCart.)
—> Confirm page with submit button with Universal Email function.

Now, The only form elements in Confirm page are the two buttons of Modify and Submit. Do I add a set session value to these button?


Should I still use eCart's set session value?
Or should I use WA Cookies Toolkit?
(Since I haven't used eCart for this form at all.)

2. You say "on the checkout page", so in my case, this could be the order form page, as it is the page you go and type in your info and ordering contents?

Hope I'm making a sense.

to get the order form bindings on the confirm page, go to the bindings panel, click the plus button and select Form Data, click the folder icon and select the order form page.

you can use either the set session value behavior for eCart or for cookies toolkit, they both the exact same thing and write the exact same code.

Yes, by checkout page, i am referring to your order form page, I'm a little to used to talking in terms of checkout and confirm page i guess ;)

No problem, I'm the one who's not used to this, so I just wanted to make sure.
I will try this out now.

Thank you.
