DataAssist Search

Hi Folks,

a bit of advice please.

I have a page that is dynamically driven with a recordset and has DataAssist Search on it as well

The issue im having is when i do a search from the search form, in order to return back the search results, it clears the dynamic information needed to display the page.

For example, the page is page1.php?CustomerID=1

When I do a search on the criteria, it clears the ?CustomerID=1 from the URL and replaces it with the?S_Search1=&S_Search2&Search.x=55&Search.y=14 hence removing the information needed on page.

Is there a way to ensure I can keep the dynamic information needed in the URL and tag the search query on to it at the end, starting with &S_Search1=&S_Search2&Search.x=55&Search.y=14 instead of ?S_Search1=&S_Search2&Search.x=55&Search.y=14 or appending the dynamic information i need at the end of the search query eg: page1.php??S_Search1=&S_Search2&Search.x=55&Search.y=14&CustomerID=1

(The URL and search fields are just examples)

Add a hidden form element to capture the URL variable and pass it with the form:

<input type="hidden" name="CustomerID" id="CustomerID" value="<?php echo(isset($_GET['CustomerID'])?$_GET['CustomerID']:""); ?>" />

since the form uses the GET method, It takes over the URL Querystring. on form data can be passed in querystring with a form that uses the GET method. Adding a form element to capture the querystring that is passed in will allow you to pass it back out again.
