    Default Preserve Data When Using Alert

    :confused; Hi can anyone tell me if there is a way to retain user input on a
    form when using a javascript to execute the window.alert method? I have an
    input form with a few radio buttons, and a single textarea. When the user
    clicks the submit button I am displaying an alert box using javascript when I
    detect any errors. However, my screen is a framed screen with the top frame
    being static, and the bottom frame containing the input fields. When the
    javascript executes to display the alert, it s away any information the
    user has entered in the bottom frame eventhough I have preservedata set to yes.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Well, nothing like answering your own question. Here is the answer for anyone
    that is looking for the same information: You simply need to use the
    history.back() method of the window object. So, the code would look like this:

    {
    history.back()
    }
