Re: Store information in Cookies?

I'm pretty sure you only have 3 options:

1) Keep the value in javascript. I can't tell from your description
if your page gets reloaded. If it does reload, then you'll lose your
javascript state.

2) Use cookies. This seems like the best solution (assuming that
your page reloads). GWT has a pretty simple API for using cookies.

3) Store state to server. This is a lot of extra work where it is
likely that cookies would be sufficient.

Good luck!
