How do I show cookie value without reload the page?

How do I show cookie value without reload the page?

I have a two page form. When I set a cookie with the following code:

<?php
if (isset($_POST["button"]) || isset($_POST["button_x"])) {
setcookie("cookTest", "".((isset($_POST["Entry"]))?$_POST["Entry"]:"") ."", time()+(60*60*24*30), "/", "", 0);
}
?>

I need to do a manually reload the 2nd page in order to show up the value.

When I use this code

<?php
if (isset($_POST["button"]) || isset($_POST["button_x"])) {
$_COOKIE['cookTest'] = ((isset($_POST["Entry"]))?$_POST["Entry"]:"");
setcookie("cookTest", "".((isset($_POST["Entry"]))?$_POST["Entry"]:"") ."", time()+(60*60*24*30), "/", "", 0);
}
?>

The cookies are set on the 2nd page but when I go back to the first page, I nedd again to reload the page manually. How can I avoid the manual reload on the first page?

You shouldn't need to reload the page, can you provide a link where i can see the problem and a copy of the pages please?

I have this problem on this page:

http://dev.rsavvy.com/order_search.php

If you set the cookie it does not hold unless you reload the page.

You could manually register the cookie in the cookie array when it is set like:

$_COOKIE['cookTest'] = "cookie value";

Sorry got side tracked. I'm not sure I know what you mean. I am using Webassist to set the cookie value...

Just so we are clear. I am setting cookies on the above mentioned link. The results of a search are being posted to the same page. I want to retain values of the form being submitted using those cookies but when the page is submitted they are not displayed. If I refresh that page or leave that page and come back the cookies are there. So the cookies are being set but for some reason not being shown until that page is revisited. I need them to be immediately. Thoughts?

I think if you used client side (javascript) cookie references on the page it will show immediately.

<script>
function getCookie(cname) {
var name = cname + "=";
var ca = document.cookie.split(';');
for(var i = 0; i <ca.length; i++) {
var c = ca[i];
while (c.charAt(0)==' ') {
c = c.substring(1);
}
if (c.indexOf(name) == 0) {
return c.substring(name.length,c.length);
}
}
return "";
}
</script>



<script>document.write(getCookie('cookiename'));</script>
