CFGRID selectmode

My form page has the following code.  On my action page I want to refer to the value of PersonID of the selected row.  I haven't been able to get this to work, even though it's probably pretty simple.  What is the exact variable name that I should use on the action page? (eg, form.MailingGrid.PersonID or what?)  Thx.



<cfform action="mailing_action.cfm" method="POST" name="loginform">

<cfgrid name="MailingGrid" height="290" width="760" query="GetListValues" selectmode="ROW" sort="yes" rowheaders="no" bgcolor="##ffffff" selectcolor="##cccccc">

<cfgridcolumn name="PersonID" select="no" display="no">
<cfgridcolumn name="NameFirst" header="First Name" select="no" width="90">
<cfgridcolumn name="NameLast" header="Last Name" select="no" width="90">

</cfgrid>
</cfform>

you will not be able to cut and past the code above to test it since you don't have access to my database

but this does what you want.  i think.

the big answer to your question is you put the gridname followed by the dot followed by the columnname enclosed by pound signs

so in your case on the page that is called by the form you would use the following code to display the selected information on the screen

<cfoutput>
  #MailingGrid.PersonID#
  #MailingGrid.NameFirst#
  #MailingGrid.NameLast
</cfoutput>

in my example the form calls the same page.  it checks to see if the submitbutton is defined if it is it displays the selected information.  if not it displays the form.  

if you have any questions let me know.
