You can create a multiple section dashboard-like interface using cflayout

  cflayout type="border"

But the user can not set his own theme, location of items, drag and drop items, etc. like what is done by .net. Any idea how to do that.
Thanks for the links

well Themes stuff can be done and is very very easy..

The portal i gave you the refrence was made during CF5+.. Although Drag and Drop was not possible till that time, moving of location is also not possible but if now using the cf8+..

the same application can be build using extensive themeing and dynamic images creation.

Drag and Drop can be done with cflayout tab as described above as use of cfajax stuff makes as website little heavier but it is possible in CF

1. Location of Items + drag and Drop can be using CF 8+ using the cflayout tabs..

2. themeing is very easy to do..

I can show u an example how to do theming..

3. Here is the basic cflayout for you to have a look how cf8 behaves in it


<html>
<head>
<title>Example</title>
</head>
<body>
<h2>Cflayout Show</h2>
<cflayout
type="border"
name="myLayout">
<cflayoutarea name="region1"
position="top" align="center">
<strong>Header Section</strong>
</cflayoutarea>
<cflayoutarea name="region2"
position="left">
<h3>Region 2</h3>
<p>This is a content section.</p>
</cflayoutarea>
<cflayoutarea name="region3"
position="center">
<h3>Region 3</h3>
<p>This is a content section.</p>
</cflayoutarea>
<cflayoutarea name="region4"
position="right">
<h3>Region 4</h3>
<p>This is a content section.</p>
</cflayoutarea>
