How to display the form values even after refreshing the page?

plz go thru my problem and reply immediately.
In a form,
I have select fields like clients,events,groups,etc.
In that i'm displaying all the clients,events and group names from
the backend database.
I'm also having a new option in each select field.
If I select the new option, it will
open a popup window, for adding a new client or event or group.
when we add a new client or event or group it will be saved in the
backend database and as I have to show that new entry in the main screen
immediately on save, I'm refreshing the main screen whenever i'm opening a pop up &
saving a new value.
my problem is, I have some text fields,text areas and select
fields whose values are refreshed when I refresh the screen.
(ie. it shows empty or its first option)
Now I want all the values to be captured and displayed back for those fields even
after refreshing this page.
(this fields are not saved in the backend till this time, as i'm just
started entering them for a new user, so I can't get them from backend).
How can we do it using javascript?
(or by using html).
My requirement may seem to be peculiar but that's what they require.
plz help me if anybody knows this.
i want this stuff immediately.
(if possible give some example coding).
(if not exact even some ideas or good suggestions will be good).
thanks in advance,
Ranch Hand

You have to repost the data in the form.
You can use some hidden input and pass it to the form again.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
