Rich Forms qry/dsp CFMX7

Fairly simple question. I'm using Fusebox 4.1 (MVC) as framework. I want to use the new Rich Flash Forms feature in CFMX7.

My question is:

Can I bind a selected record in a data grid on "Tab 1", to display a "select/edit" form on "Tab 2"?

I want my users to select a record in a data grid on the first tab of my flash form. After that record has been selected, if they click on tab 2, it would display that individual record's "edit" form.

How would you do this?

Please let me know if I need to be more specific.

    Hi tekkehost,

     yes you can look into the docs, but it something like this

     <cfinput type="text" bind="{}> Where you reference the id of the field and the name of the field.

    So in other words, binding to a text field on another tab is accepted?

    Yes it sure is...

    If you look into the documentation of cf7, there is an example of a cfgrid where it binds to a master/detail section where you click on the grid and it populates text fields.
