I was wondering if there was a way to change the status of selected in the CFLAYOUT tag.
im using the tabs for office locations - each tab is a different location.
The end user wants to be able to click on a location from a different page that will take them to the office locations page and the location they have clicked on will be the tab that is shown as selected.

i tried the following but could not get anything to work
<cfif IsDefined("URL.location") AND #URL.location# EQ "belfast">
<cflayoutarea name="Belfast" title="Belfast" selected="true">
<cfelse>
<cflayoutarea name="Belfast" title="Belfast">
</cfif

i also tried putting the if around the selected part of CFLAYOUT
<cflayoutarea name="Belfast" title="Belfast" <cfif IsDefined("URL.location") AND #URL.location# EQ "belfast">selected="true"</cfif>>

but each one kept throwing back errors and would not work, so if anyone could help that would be great
