Prevent input value from resetting on refresh

Related searches

I've noticed that in Firefox an input element maintains its value when the page is reset but not in Safari. Is there a way to maintain the values a user would have typed in JavaScript (no PHP).

I've tried Googling this fairly extensively but every result seems to find this behavior undesirable.

Edit: Not sure what I am doing wrong, this is what I tried:

<input id="myInput" type="text">
<script>
    var myInput = document.getElementById("myInput");

    if (sessionStorage.getItem("autosave"))
        myInput.value = sessionStorage.getItem("autosave");

    myInput.addEventListener("change", function() {
        sessionStorage.setItem("autosave", myInput.value);
    });
</script>

Edit (again): Got it working, thank you:

<input id="myInput" type="text">
<script>
    var myInput = document.getElementById("myInput");

    window.onload = function() {
        if (sessionStorage.getItem("autosave"))
            myInput.value = sessionStorage.getItem("autosave");
    }

    myInput.addEventListener("keyup", function() {
        sessionStorage.setItem("autosave", myInput.value);
    });
</script>
<input id="persistent_text_field" value=""/>

In your JS assuming you're using jQuery

$(document).on('ready',function(){
    if(sessionStorage.getItem('last_entry')){
        $("#persistent_text_field").val(sessionStorage.getItem('last_entry'));
    }

    $("#persistent_text_field").on("keypress",function(){
        sessionStorage.setItem('last_entry',$(this).val());
    });
});

EDIT: Non jQuery Solution? Simple :)

<input id="persistent_text_field" value="" onkeypress="setStorage(this)"/>

In your JavaScript file call customReset(); in your document load event handler function.

function customReset(){
    if(sessionStorage.getItem('last_entry')){
        var element = document.getElementById("presistent_text_field");
        element.value = sessionStorage.getItem('last_entry');
    }
}

function setStorage(element){
    sessionStorage.setItem('last_entry',element.value);
}
