Hello there.

Topic: Forms
Problem: If validation fails all FormFields are empty.
I Want the old (even thogh faild to validate) values to be filled in, so that a user does not have to reenter it.

Before you flame me: I did search docs,forum and google, but there were no accurate results within the first 30/40 results.
Suggestion: I think what I want is not so odd. You may consider to mention that in the Form-Topic of the doc section.

Thanks & best regards,

I think you are missing the "redirectBack", see this example..
