Have the browser remember where to go after submit

This Content Component encountered an error

There are various techniques to return the user to the correct document or view such as using $$Return and HTTP REFER fields. Have the browser remember where to go by setting a global variable with JavaScript. This works great with the $$ViewTemplateDefault form.

I've used this technique to solve a problem with the FileCloseWindow @command returning to the view instead of the document with an embedded view. It works great in IE4x, IE5x and NS4x.

Code: Place this code in the JSHeader of the form.

// set this as a global variable
window.parent.LastViewViewed=window.location.href;

In the $$Return but the following Formula language:
"<b>Saving Distribution, one moment please.</b><br>" + @Text(@Now) + @NewLine +
"<script language="JavaScript">" + @NewLine +
"  window.location.href = window.parent.LastInvoice; " + @NewLine +
"</script>" + @NewLine

or for a close action, use JavaScript:

window.location.href = window.parent.LastViewViewed;

The above code was based on an application with frames.
