Multi-form process; how to pass validated data?

I've, at last, managed to sort out an issue with binding validated fields to a form fields so that I can display messages (show if) if there are errors.

How do I get my validated fields / data to pass through to the next form in the process? The POST method doesn't seem to work after validation has taken place (and I even had to hand code the Header location for progressing on to next if all of the form fields were valid - the old VT code snippet :
<?php if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {
$url = "test_serverside_success.php";
Header("Location: $url");
}
?>

to reproduce the usual form action)

To see the form in action please view: test_serverside_validations.php

The Error messages appear here if validation fails but, if successful, the browser passes on the the next stage where I'd expect to pick up the usual $_POST entries.

you need to set the action of the form to post to the second page, an add the server validation to the second page as well.

on the second page, go to the bindings panel, click the plus button and select Form Data, click the folder icon and select the first page to add dynamic data bindings for the form from the first page.

then add the server validation server behavior to validation the form, and use the post to capture the form variables into hidden.


The issue is that form post data only exists while the forms action page is processing, once that page finishes processing or the page is redirected, the post is destroyed.
