No @picklist equivalent

I have a table in a form. I show this table in tabs. When I run this form in WEB and I write some information in one tab, as soon as I go to another tab the information in the first tab is deleted. Does this kind of format for tables work for WEB? Is there any way I can show this format without losing my information? Which instruction replaces "@picklist" in Java or JavaScript?
In the Advanced tab of the form properties, tick the box that says "Generate HTML for all fields." The problem occurs because the Domino server doesn't remember anything about your form until it is saved -- each time you submit it you have to send all the data. Unless you tick this option, the Domino server only creates HTML tags for the fields you can see on the screen and edit, so the values of fields on other tabs are lost. If you use the View Source option in the browser before and after making this change, you should see what I'm talking about -- there are no "INPUT" tags for those other fields.

There is no equivalent to @Picklist in Java or JavaScript. Implementing this functionality in a Web browser is laborious. People have written articles about it. This article might be helpful.
