I have a profile page that I'm building. Column output for thumbnails is preferred but I am not clear on how to define a maximum number of colums to display.. and then to place previous and next links. I would like 3 colums, then a maximum of 15 recors per page (5 rows)

Here is what I have so far.......

<cfquery name="getData" datasource="profile">
    SELECT *
    FROM contacts
      WHERE state='CA' and country='USA' and status='APPROVED'
                  ORDER BY RND(ContactID)
</cfquery>

<cfscript>
      if (NOT structKeyExists(form, 'cols')) form.cols = 3;
</cfscript>

<cfif getData.recordCount MOD form.cols>
      <cfset variables.rows = int(getData.recordCount/form.cols) + 1>
      <cfset variables.pads = form.cols - (getData.recordCount MOD form.cols)>

      <cfloop from="1" to="#variables.pads#" index="i">
            <cfset temp = queryAddRow(getData)>
            <cfset temp = querySetCell(getData, 'contactID', '')>
      </cfloop>
<cfelse>
      <cfset variables.rows = getData.recordCount/form.cols>
</cfif>

<cfset variables.thisRow = 1>
<cfset variables.newrow = false>

<CFINCLUDE TEMPLATE="uppertemplate.cfm">
<p align="center"><b><font face="Arial" color="FFFFFF">CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES LISTINGS</font></b></p>
<table style="border:0px" cellpadding="0" width="100%">
<tr>
<cfoutput query="getData">
      <cfif variables.newrow IS true><tr></cfif>
          <td><p align="center"><img border="0" src="../listphotos/#contactID#a.gif"></td>
      <cfif (getData.currentRow MOD form.cols EQ 0) AND (variables.thisRow LT variables.rows)>
            </tr>
            <cfset variables.newrow = true>
            <cfset variables.thisRow = variables.thisRow + 1>
      <cfelse>
            <cfset variables.newrow = false>
      </cfif>
</cfoutput>
</tr>
</table>

Hi there

Just tried to build one for you. try this:

<cfquery name="getData" datasource="profile">
    SELECT *
    FROM contacts
     WHERE state='CA' and country='USA' and status='APPROVED'
               ORDER BY RND(ContactID)
</cfquery>

<cfparam name="maxTD" default="3">
<cfparam name="maxTR" default="5">
<cfparam name="startrow" default="1">
<cfset name="maxrows" default=maxTD * maxtr>

<CFINCLUDE TEMPLATE="uppertemplate.cfm">

<p align="center"><b><font face="Arial" color="FFFFFF">CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES LISTINGS</font></b></p>
<table style="border:0px" cellpadding="0" width="100%">
<tr>
<cfoutput query="getData" startrow="#startrow#" maxrows="#maxrows#">
    <td><p align="center"><img border="0" src="../listphotos/#contactID#a.gif"></td>
    <cfif not (getdata.currentrow mod maxTD) AND (getdata.currentrow-startrow) is not (maxrows-1)></tr><tr></cfif>
</cfoutput>
</tr>
</table>

<cfset previousstart = startrow - maxrows>
<cfif previousstart GTE 1>
<a href="thiesfile.cfm?startrow=#previousstart#">PREVIOUS</a>
</cfif>

<cfset nextstart = startrow + maxrows>
<cfif nextstart LT getData.recordcount>
<a href="thiesfile.cfm?startrow=#nextstart#">NEXT</a>
</cfif>

<CFINCLUDE TEMPLATE="lowertemplate.cfm">


Let me know if this works for you

Thanks for the reply Mause.. But that generates an error.

Invalid CFML construct found on line 11 at column 23.  
ColdFusion was looking at the following text:
default

The CFML compiler was processing:

a cfset tag beginning on line 11, column 2.
 
 
The error occurred in line 11
 
9 : <cfparam name="maxTR" default="5">
10 : <cfparam name="startrow" default="1">
11 : <cfset name="maxrows" default=maxTD * maxtr>
12 :
13 : <CFINCLUDE TEMPLATE="uppertemplate.cfm">
