Hi Experts..

I am working on a website which has created four layouts using cflayout tags like TOP, LEFT,CENTER, BOTTOM, RIGHT.

Now in the left cflayout, i did <cfinclude template="navigation.cfm">

it loads perfectly.

now i have a cftree code in it which is below attached.

i want that when i click the tree item it should load the contents in the cflayoutarea CENTER area.

is that possible. if so how? can u guys provide me a way for doing it. i am just started playing with cflayout tag yet!

Please Help Me


<cfinvoke component="#request.cfcPath#.tools" method="getcategories" returnvariable="showcats"/>
<table width="100" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<CFFORM ACTION="OpenItem.cfm" preservedata="yes" timeout="1000000"> 
<tr><td>
    <CFTREE NAME= "Categories" border="no" font="Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif" fontsize="11" highlighthref="yes" lookandfeel="MOTIF" HEIGHT="500" WIDTH="200" format="flash" notsupported="Please Install Flash to View all Categories" appendkey="no" align="middle"> 
    <CFLOOP QUERY="showcats"> 
        <CFTREEITEM VALUE="#ItemID#" PARENT="#ParentItemID#" DISPLAY="#catname#" EXPAND="no" img="images/folder.gif" href="showcategories.cfm?action=#itemID#"> 
    </CFLOOP> 
    </CFTREE></td></tr>

The easiest way I found was to write a function that accepts the selected tree item value and uses ColdFusion.navigate to open showcategories.cfm in the desired cflayoutarea.

The href parameter in your <cftreeitem would contain "javascript:functionName(value);"

actually, if all you need is to open the page within the <cflayout area, all you need in the href param is:

javascript:ColdFusion.navigate('showcategories.cfm?action=#itemID#','cflayoutareaname');

'cflayoutareaname represents whatever name you are going to give the cflayoutarea in which you wish the showcategories.cfm page to appear.

You shouldn't need to use <cfinclude> since the ColdFusion.navigate will populate the cflayoutarea for you
