Question

Hi all, i hope someone can help me out.

I have a tabular search form with details form.

I have implemented default values on the dropdowns in the search form.

The defaults are set in the datapageready and beforeformsubmit events using localstorage,

This works fine from the desktop chrome browser but not from my mobile phone also using chrome browser.

Here is the code snippet:

<script type="text/javascript">
document.addEventListener('DataPageReady', function (event) {

     if (typeof(Storage) !== "undefined") {
         if(localStorage.getItem("continent") !== null && localStorage.getItem("continent") !== "") {
            document.getElementsByName("Value2_1")[0].value = localStorage.getItem("continent");
         } else {
            document.getElementsByName("Value2_1")[0].value =  "1";
         }
     } else {
           alert ("Sorry! No Web Storage support..");
     }

     // stop for sometime if needed
     setTimeout(setCountry, 1000);
});

function setCountry() {
     if (typeof(Storage) !== "undefined") {
         if(localStorage.getItem("country") !== null && localStorage.getItem("country") !== "") {
            document.getElementsByName("Value3_1")[0].value =  localStorage.getItem("country");
         } else {
            document.getElementsByName("Value3_1")[0].value ="1";
         }
     } else {
           alert ("Sorry! No Web Storage support..");
     }

     var event = new Event('change');
     document.getElementsByName("Value3_1")[0].dispatchEvent(event);


    // stop for sometime if needed   
    setTimeout(setLanguage, 1000);
}

function setLanguage() {
     if (typeof(Storage) !== "undefined") {
         if(localStorage.getItem("language") !== null && localStorage.getItem("language") !== "") {
alert ("Language is already set in DataPageReady to " + localStorage.getItem("language"));
            document.getElementsByName("Value4_1")[0].value =  localStorage.getItem("language");
         } else {
            document.getElementsByName("Value4_1")[0].value = "1";
         }
     } else {
           alert ("Sorry! No Web Storage support..");
     }

     var event = new Event('change');
     document.getElementsByName("Value4_1")[0].dispatchEvent(event);

   // stop for sometime if needed    
    setTimeout(setCultureFeature, 1000);
}

function setCultureFeature() {
     if (typeof(Storage) !== "undefined") {
         if(localStorage.getItem("culturefeature") !== null && localStorage.getItem("culturefeature") !== "") {
            document.getElementsByName("Value5_1")[0].value = localStorage.getItem("culturefeature");
         } else {
            document.getElementsByName("Value5_1")[0].value =   "6";
         }
     } else {
           alert ("Sorry! No Web Storage support..");
     }

     var event = new Event('change');
     document.getElementsByName("Value5_1")[0].dispatchEvent(event);
}

document.addEventListener('BeforeFormSubmit', function (event) {
     if (typeof(Storage) !== "undefined") {   
localStorage.setItem("continent",document.getElementsByName("Value2_1")[0].value);
localStorage.setItem("country",document.getElementsByName("Value3_1")[0].value);
localStorage.setItem("language",document.getElementsByName("Value4_1")[0].value);
localStorage.setItem("culturefeature",document.getElementsByName("Value5_1")[0].value);
     } else {
           alert ("Sorry! No Web Storage support..");
     }
});
</script>

Hi @Meekeee - I have a one-page submission form in which I would like to implement localstorage on (each field). In the past, I have used multi-page forms to save data as the user goes, but there is a lot of logic built into one long page, so I would like to save data to localstorage in case the user accidentally exits out of the page and has to return to it.
