Hi!
From one form (ex: Form_A), by selecting a radio button another form (ex: Form_B) is opened for some data entry. After closing the second form (i.e., Form_B) how to transfer the entered values to the first form (i.e., Form_A) without refreshing the first form (i.e., Form_A).
Thanks in advance.

If you don't want to refresh the form by sending the information back to the server, you will need to use some JavaScript to modify the document containing the original form.
I did once work with an application which stored transient iformation like this in an applet, but even doing it that way, you still need some JavaScript to populate the actual form fields.

Couldn't you use a session object to do this?
