In MVC 4, what is the best practice for maintaing search criteria when going from a list of items to a details page , then back to the list? I would like users to be able to hit a "return to list" link and have the the form in the search view populated.
I was hoping i could send my search criteria model to the details page to build the link, but i'm not sure of the best way.

You can use Session to store search criteria and on "return to list" link, get data based on Session.

Thanks. I use session often when using webforms (probably too often) to do this type of thing, but is this best practice for an MVC 4 application that may run on azure one day?
If I do use session, would TempData work, or would data be lost on the details page? I'm linda new to MVC.

In azure there is a Session provider.

There is a TempDataProvider based on cookies . It should work .
