Solved

I am running into a problem displaying a graph on a SSL web site when using <cfgraph> tag.

When my user goes to a template on my SSL web site, and it needs to display a graph, the browser warns the user that the page is displaying both secure and non-secure items.  I need this to be all SSL encrypted!  I am running 2 IIS 5.0 sites on a windows 2000 server, running ColdFusion MX, and using an IIS SSL cert @ 128 bit.  When I setup the SSL site, I ran the batch files that remote and then re-create the IIS connectors, so both sites serve CF pages just fine, but my graphs are not encrypted, help! :)

Hello,

<cfgraph> references files that reside in the /cfide folder, so you will need to create a virtual directory on your secure site that points to the CFIDE folder.

Regards,

You can save the graph/chart to a file first that is in the secure location (instead of cfide) and then display that.

This will prevent the warning.

PS you should use cfchart and not cfgraph on MX

Example saving to a file in secure location:

<cfchart
      chartheight="600"
      chartwidth="750"
      yaxistitle="Reservation Count"
      format="jpg"
      scalefrom="0"
      scaleto="300"
      gridlines="13"
      name="output_graph">

chart contents go here
</cfchart>

<cffile
      action="write"
      charset="ISO-8859-1"
      file="#ExpandPath('/graphs/MyGraph.jpg')#"
      output="#output_graph#"
      addnewline="yes">

<cfoutput><img src="/graphs/MyGraph.jpg" height="600" width="750"></cfoutput>
<!--- The above line actually displays the chart --->

sweeet, I didnt click that I could save the chart output as a variable. :)  From the looks of it I could output a .swf too for flash formatted charts, yes?

As far as multiple charts, I could possibly write some kind of loop to increment names, some of my templates present 10 or more charts....

(I do use cfchart, sorry, I still remember cfgraph from 2 versions ago, hehe)

I guess my other question is, can I possibly tell the cfchart tag to output in a different root folder or something, this solution would be a pain in the rear for the tons of charts I have to make! :)

yep - you can specify whatever folder you want in the cffile portion - and you can dynamically make the names
