I have just installed CF and am now disapointed to discover that it seems to lack a basic 'feature' that is available in ASP.
I am developing from Dreamweaver MX 2004.
I don't like manually coding where it can be avoided. I know I can achieve what I want to do by manually coding, but in ASP pages it's not necessary...
All I want to do is link to a detail page passing an ID parameter. When using the ASP server model, in the Server Behaviours drop down, there is an item to 'Go to Detail page' which pops up a nice little form where you can specify the detail page you want to go to, the parameter that you want to pass etc. etc.
In CF, this option isn't available, and seemingly I have to do it manually ??!
Am I missing something (quite possible, I've only been using it for a couple of hours so far) or is it simply that CF is more labour intensive and requires more manual coding ?
Any thoughts about :
a/ how to acheve my 'go to detail page' welcomed and,
b/ what have I really gained by getting CF over basic ASP?? So far I'm not sure!!
Offering a lot of points relative to an easy question - particularly for some useful thoughts on point b/
