Form needs to split up into tabs and then send out

Hi,

My clients has a form which stores data into a MySQL database but instead of having all the fields on one page he wants like a tabs to split the form up and make it seem less. Examples:

Personal info | contact deails | button | buttons
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name
surname
etc.

will thus apear if someone clicked on Persomal info


When you then click on one of the buttons it open up the form fields. Thus I must be able to navigate the tabs while still keeping the info. After you filled out every thing and click the tabs and done playing with the tabs you click send.

How on earth do I naviagate tabs while still keeping all the details in the text field which the person entered?

I don't even know what this is called, any info will help or suggestions. I don't even have a starting point.

Thank you

Basically, you should build all the html elements into a tab format. Then have an onclick javascript function that toggles the display attribute of the tab. That way, you won't lose any data.
