Can't access form field from previous page

Recommended Posts

I've built a multipage form using QuickForm_Controller.  It has 5 pages, plus a final confirmation page, not too dissimilar to a shopping cart's checkout functionality.

If I'm on page3 and want to reference a particular field on that page in javascript I use:[code]page3.fieldname.value[/code] and it works just fine.

Is it possible to reference fields on other pages?  When I try to reference an item on page2 from page3, for example, I get this error:

[code]Error: page2 is not defined
Source File: http://testbox/formtest.php?_qf_page3_display=true
Line: 1[/code]

No. You'll need to pass this data from one page to the next.

It's already getting passed along to the final page though.

Currently my last page consists of..
[code=php:0]$values = $page->controller->exportValues();
var_dump($values);[/code]

.. which outputs all the fields from all pages.  Can I not somehow access that data before the exportValues() call?  ???

Why can't you just use the exportValues() call on p3?

Fair chance it will still be available on p5.
