Subject RE: CForms, repeater and continuation
Date Mon, 18 Apr 2005 20:23:34 GMT
 Could you save the form into a session variable (i.e. use the session
transformer in the success pipeline) at the point where the user exits
the form, and then aggregate the old data from the session variable and
the new data from the current context when initiating a new form?
Otherwise you're stuck stretching a continuation across a bunch of
non-form-related hits (as the user navigates to the new page).
