Remembering Settings

One way to make your application more helpful is to have it remember certain settings or actions as users interact with it. For instance, in Chapter 20, ColdFusion's Client Management feature was used to remember the words the user searched for last. When the user later returns to the search page, their most recent search phrase is already filled in. This improves their experience by saving time and making them feel at home.

Remembering User Names and Passwords

If your application requires visitors to log in by providing a user name and password, consider adding some type of “remember me” option on the login form. This would cause the user name to be prefilled when they next log in. You can use the same basic technique used in the SearchForm1.cfm and SearchForm2.cfm templates from Chapter 20. Instead of using the CLIENT scope to remember the last search phrase, use it to remember and prefill the user name.
