Entire Form From Cookie

Entire Form From Cookie

My form is within a template and access to the tag is not convenient, I would need to detach.
The HELP file suggests: "or the tag that contains the appropriate event to trigger setting the form values".

This is a contact form and the captcha failure erases the form contents. In this case the validation and sending of the email is done on a separate page.

Where else could I attach this behavior?


PS the attached version is detached

you would not use Cookies Toolkit for this, you would use the validated entries.

the work flow when using Server Validation when a form posts to the other page is:

On the forms action page, open the bindings panel, click the plus button and select Form Data. In the form data dialog click the folder icon and select the form page.

This adds dynamic data bindings to the bindings panel for the form.

now add the Server validation server behavior to the action page, make sure to set the failed redirect to go back to the form page.

back on the form page, add the error messages to show which fields have failed validation. Select the error message in design view, then add a Validation Show If Behavior (WebAssist -> Forms -> Validation -> Validation Show If)

in the validation show if, set the validation page to the forms action page, from the list of validations, select the validation that should trigger the error.

now select the form element, in the property inspector, click the lightning bolt next to initial value, expand the validated entries group and select the corresponding binding.
