I'm experiencing a great deal of frustration and although I've looked through as much printed and online documentation as I can find I cannot figure out the correct thing to do here.
First, on my XP box I have a full StudioMX install and so I am running CFMX developers edition. I want to add a CFGRID to a page on our intranet. I started by using Forta's ActorGrid.cfm from his book and it works fine on my machine. I then wrote my own version for our database and it works fine on my machine.
Next, I moved the file over to the Win2003 in-house web server which is running CFMX 6.1. I am the administrator. I have never run CFGRID on this box before and the code is not running properly. I get a big gray box with a red X at the top.
So, after reading bunches of help that doesn't exactly give me the answers I decided that the answer is to use the Administrator | Extensions | Java Applets page to register the CFGridApplet. I looked in my PC's administrator page and there are NO Java Applets listed so I couldn't figure out why the CFGRID ran fine on my machine but will not run on the web server. So I tried to register the Applet with the following:
Applet Name: CFGridApplet.class
Code Base: http://SIMPWEBI/inetpub/wwwroot/CFIDE/applets/coldfusion/applets
Height: 500 Width: 500
Not supported message: not supported.
Applet Parameters: left blank
So I hit add and it appears on the Java Applets page but it doesn't do anything for me.
Incidentally, I found a folder buried deep on my C drive under my username/documents and settings with a 41 CF*.class files. I copied these to my web server and pointed the Java Applets page (under code base) to the CFGridApplet.class in this folder.
There is no security turned on with either of these boxes. They are internal and not exposed to the web.
Thanks in advance, Jerry
