Can a global variable save a changed value permanently, even after form is closed?

P: 1

I was working with acrojavascript when i came acroos it.

I have a pdf form. A global variable t=1 is initialized. Just before the form is closed, it calls a function dat increments its value by 1 and makes t=2 before closing. Now the application is closed.
Whenever i open it again, it gets reinitialized to t=1.

But i want the value of this variable to store t=2 permanently, even after the form is closed. the code i used is:

//a global is declared in form's property as y=1

var t=y.value;

function increment()
app.alert("value incrementd: "+t);
} // it shows t=2. (fine till here)

function save()
app.alert("in function save: "+ y.value+" & t is: "+t);
} //it shows y=2 and t=2. (fine till here)

But then, i cudnt figure out how to make this change be stored permanently. So dat, next time when form is opened again, it shud have y=2.

Welcome to TSDN.

I am unfamiliar with Acrojavascript, but javascript, in any case, is not persistent. You can't have session variables like you can with server-side languages.

What you can have are cookies. However, I am not sure what, if any, equivalent there is for acrojs.
