hey all, I have been playing with the CFAjax proxy tag within cf 8.  I have successfully managed to populate from the cfc and also upon selection of a dropdown (displaying records).  now I am having a hard time figuring out how to get to the next level which for me is to perform and update of the database on the fly using the same method (cfajaxproxy).  Can anyone please help me out here I am hitting a brick wall.

ColdFusion.Ajax.submitForm('formID', '/cfcs/echo.cfc?method=doEcho', echoReturn, ajaxError);
