MAX Sneak Peaks

This post is more than 2 years old.

I missed the sneak peaks last night at MAX, but I found an excellent review: Live blogging MAX 2008 sneak peak session. This blog entry puts my live blogging of the keynote to shame! I'll have to look into the tool he used before the next conference. Anyway, pay particular attention to the reveal at the end - server side actionscript.

What does the server-side actionscript run on? I don't see any mention of ColdFusion.

No idea, Dan. Sorry.

Ray, have you seen this: I have a cfinput type=checkbox bound to a cfgrid via the grid's bind attribute. The checkbox is supposed to limit the returned recordset via it's value (on or off). Using the ColdFusion AJAX debugger, I see that the value of the checkbox is being passed to the cfc as "on" regardless of whether it is checked or not! Is this some sort of bug?

When you check it off, is the value not passed? Ie, when checked, name=X is passed, when unchecked, name= doesn't exist at all?

Oh I see what you mean. Let me check.

Got it. You bind to the checked param:


This will pass foo=true or foo=false depending on if the checkbox is checked.

Thanks for the link.

Thanks Ray! Your solution: foo={foo.checked} worked like a charm!
