Do any folks know of a coldfusion tag to provide a scrollable table / grid?
I'm keen to provide up to 1000 rows of data with up to 10 columns ... within a specific area on my web page.  Obviously I need, therefore, to allow scrolling, vertical and horizontal (though not as urgent).

I found http://www.activewidgets.com/ that my newbie'ness will try and adapt to server-side CF but I was hoping to 'keep it in the family' and find something in Coldfusion.

Any ideas?

Well you could have:

1) A frame or iframe on your page

2) It within a div with the scrollable attributes turned on

Either of these suggestions will work and not require any obscure cf coding as they are html and css solutions

Activewidgets is actually done using a iframe and javascript.
