I was working on a project yesterday, and I was using an editable CFGrid to manage a list of data. On my form I wanted to create a button with an onClick event that would take the data from the selected row in my CFGrid , and then do some processing and update that row on the CFGrid and in the database automatically. To do this I needed some way to update the data in a specific cell on the grid,
I installed it easily and now my .js files are nicely color coded. Hooray
There are many new AJAX functionalities included with CF8 and I am going to start to share some small things I have found useful. I will title these blog entries so they all start with "CF8 AJAX Features".
This first example shows a page that is using cflayout area "left" to display an html cftree that contains a hierarchical structure of categories (this could also apply to a page/sub page navigation system if you wanted to use cftree for that) and a cflayoutarea "center" that displays the child categories of the selected tree node.
