Cookie creation without submitting form to other page

Cookie creation without submitting form to other page

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone has ever found a workaround for cookies in ASP dataform pages.

I have a dropdown, #country# and I want to retain the value the user chose in the cookie 'first'.

Because the ASP page needs to be submitted to another page and is not done through the form action, the cookie is lost (well, never created?).

Any help on keeping my biscuits would be grand.


RE: Cookie creation without submitting form to other page

Try this VBScript action:

Insert this at head of page


changing field name to your own, then populate page field with line 2 of script above on any subsequent page which requires this info.

It should work alongside javascript or any other script you are using as long as you place line 1 of the code at page head.
