Storing information entered into a textbox

Postby hcs » Thu Apr 14, 2011 8:20 am

I want to allow my users to type information into a text box and I want to be able to revisit that textual information in other pages. I'm assuming I need advanced HTML for this? Any insights on how to do this would be appreciated!

I apologize in the delay in getting to your question. This isn't directly possible in ProtoShare. That is, you can't use the native components to ProtoShare to take information in one component and read it in another. It may be possible to use some method with the HTML components such as sessions, but I don't have an example of that.

What you can do is using states simulate a user selecting a value from a component, with a fixed number of pre-selected values, such as a selection box, and then use that state elsewhere to display specific components.
