Description Author

This package can fill form inputs with the values entered by a user.

It provides a component for applications that use the Yii framework to store input values for each application.

The next time the user fills the form with the same inputs, this package can retrieve the values that the user entered so the application can supply the information with the last importance.

Many Web site users do not have much patience to do repetitive tasks.

If they have to fill out lengthy forms with information, they may avoid it and not fill it, especially if the form asks for values already requested.

This package provides some help to minimize that issue. It provides a solution to "remember" the values that a user filled in a form with the same types of inputs.

So next time a Web site asks the user to fill a form with the same fields, this package can provide the values the user entered last time so that the application can pre-fill the inputs with those values.
