Have the browser remember where to go after submit

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

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.
