Terminating a Session After Logout

Terminating a Session After Logout

Hi:

I have assigned the Logout behavior to a button that when pressed redirects to the Login page, but when another (or the same) user logs in and goes to the insert-record page, the fields are still populated with the data previously entered. I have read in WA's Forums that WA's Logout behavior is actually a Destroy Session behavior, but if it is so, how come those fields are still populated when another user logs in?

The Insert page has a validation behavior and all the Insert fields use WA_Validated Entries each, which may be the reason that the fields are still populated. But if the user already logged out (destroyed the session), why are those fields not empty after a fresh Login?

I have tried to destroy the session using the following code in the Index page but I get error messages when the user goes again to the insert page:

// remove all session variables
session_unset();

// destroy the session
session_destroy();

Any suggestions on how to delete all the data entered previously? Either on Logout or on the Index page?

Thank you for your attention

What is the error you are getting on the insert page? Those lines should clear the session. Probably one or the other would work, but it shouldn't cause issues to use both. I think the issue is correcting the error on the insert page, so if you provide that I may be able to help.

Attached please find the following:

1) the Insert page, 2) the error page that has the Logout ("No") button and 3) the Index page. -- #2 is the page that opens when validation fails on the Insert page.

Apologies if it looks a bit messy, but I'm in the process of building this site and I'm having some problems with the validation behavior on the Insert page. I will open another thread for that issue.

Thank you for your attention

Sorry I don't know what I'm looking for. What is the exact error that you get?

The problem is the following:

When validation fails on the Insert page, users are redirected to the FailedValidationPage, and when users click on the "No" button in that page they are sent back to the Index page. That "No" button is supposed to activate the Logout behavior, but when the user Logs in again and goes to the insert page, the fields in the Insert page are still populated with the data previously entered. In other words, the Logout Behavior is not terminating the Session.

The code just removes the login session variables... to remove the entire session add this to line 22:

session_destroy();
