CFSELECT bind to query with "selected" value

I am using bind to pull data into a select list, which then binds another select list to display drilled down results. I am unable to use the "selected" value in the cfselect. I want to be able to allow the user to return to the form and have the last selected results display. Here is my code:

<cfselect name="orgid" style="width:600px;" value="orgid" display="fullorg" selected="#form.orgid#" bind="cfc:lib.cfc.orgoffice.qryOrg()" bindonload="true" />

<cfselect name="officeid" size="5" style="width:600px;" multiple="yes" value="officeid" display="fulloffice" selected="#form.officeid#" bind="cfc:lib.cfc.orgoffice.qryOffice({orgid})" bindonload="true" />

The binding works fine, just the "selected" doesn't display the form.orgid value (same for the second one).

Essentially you should be able to tweak this so that you first get your passed form value and then resort so that it is the selected default - or don't do the resort if the form value does not exist.

That's all I can think of or find at the moment.  Good luck, and hopefully someone else has had more time to play with CFAJAX or spry or similar to maybe suggest a better solution.

Yes, unfortunately that is almost always the 'growing pains' associated with developing 'bleeding-edge' solutions.  As I have found over the past 4 versions of CF (and application development in general) - it will take only about 4 weeks longer than you have in any given project for a new version or update to be released which will provide the features that you require.

I've done some more searching, and I can't find or come up with anything simpler - I'm glad, however, that at least this did work for you.

Good luck.

I would suggest another attribute for the cfselect tag like:
' bindSelected="#result.value# " to replace  ' selected="#result.value#" '
It would be a nice addition if it hasn't already been added in CF9.
