Showing my lack of User interface application skills here.
We have web applications built with PL/SQL. The goal is to develop a
simple timing application. When the user enters the fist screen, make
a log entry which include the time. When they exit that screen, note
how they exited (e.g. OK or CANCEL button pressed) and update the log
with a stop time. Given the stateless nature of HTML, what's the best
practice to deal with this situation?
Use a cookie?
Use hidden HTML form fields?
I feel so dumb.
