Hi All,

I have page called page1.php with some hidden fields and i submitted the page to page2.php. I page2.php, i am able to get the values of hidden fields through $_REQUEST. And from this page 2 i need to forward the values of hidden fields to page3. Is any way to send the previous request directly to page3? or do i need to again write the values into hidden fields and get them in page3?I have a total of 70 hidden fields getting through the script. So i could not use sessions.

without sessions, yes you would need to assign them to a hidden field... however if you have 70 hidden fields?? why not create a session array?

$_SESSION['formVars'] = array(
'var1' => _______,
'var2' => _______,
'var3' => _______,
'var4' => _______,
'var5' => _______

and when you need to update just 1 element in the array you just do

$_SESSION['formVars']['var_'] = _________;

and to retrieve it you use the same principle
