Coldfusion SELECT Options

Coldfusion Question SELECT option
I have the following code:
<TD>Fruits</TD>
<cfinclude template="/market/diff_fruits.cfm">
<TD colspan="4">
      <SELECT name="available_fruits">
              <option value="">
         <cfoutput query="diff_fruits.cfm">
             <option value="#code#" >#description#
         </cfoutput>
      </SELECT>
The Query pulls the following records:
Code             Description
B                   Banana
A                   Apple
O                   Orange

I want to base the selections on certain users.  Like User A can only pick Banana and Apple while user B can only pick Orange.  Or User A can see all options but Orange is grayed out.


Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi,

From the code included so far - it is hard to tell whether your database or user security structure even supports this functionality.  What criteria about a user should restrict or define their access to the given options?

Example: UserA is a member of Group1, UserB is a member of Group2 (groups would likely be another table).
Your Fruits table would need to have a bridge to the Groups table to restrict access by group to the different options.

If you want to explain a little more about your structure, I am happy to assist.
