Mulitple URL Variables in CFWINDOW - Destroy / Create

Posted on 2008-10-30
Last Modified: 2008-10-30
I have a page with a normal HTML table that has a CFLOOP populating it. I am needing to pass two URL variables through to a CFWINDOW which has another CFLOOP on it that is conditional based off the variables that are passed. Below is a snippet. I have it now where it is at least populating the CFWINDOW, but only with the first record, and it doesn't matter which link you click on as it always uses the first record, as opposed to the record ID of the link you click on.

I have to be able to pass both a project_id variable (which is already being passed through the URL) and a type= variable which is pulled from the ServicesQuery

Any and all help would be much appreciated.

Attached is the query - and lines 60 and 70-73 are the window popup.
<cfquery datasource="#application.dsn#" name="ServicesQuery">
		FROM project_services
		INNER JOIN project_services_type on project_services.type=project_services_type.service_type
		where project_id = #project_id#
		order by service_order asc

I'm also needing to know how to have the CFWINDOW destroy the last contents, and refresh with the new contents from a different link (ID)

nevermind - figured it out

I added the CFWINDOW into the loop, structured the "name" of the window within the loop to have a UNIQUE name by adding "name="#ServicesQuery.sched_id#-Comments" into the CFWINDOW tag, and for LINE 60 :

<a href="##" onclick="javascript:ColdFusion.Window.show('#ServicesQuery.sched_id#-Comments')">Comments</a></td>

Works like a charm ;-)
