Bind to cfc in colfusion 9

Hi -

I'm sure this is elementary, but I cannot figure out what my issue is. I have my cfc's registered in coldfusion and can also get to them by using CreateObject, but get this error when trying to bind to them:
"The specified CFC ChargeInfo could not be found."

This finds them:
<cfset ChargeInfo=CreateObject("Component","#pathtofunctions#.CompleteInfo")>

Open in new window


But doing a bind on a cfinput throws the above error. I am able to bind to url's with no issue.

Thanks!

Print out that #pathtofunctions# and see what is wrong there.

It prints correctly, as functions.CompleteInfo

I do it this way as my production server is Windows and development machine is Mac OSx.

Even when typing it out complete, I still get the same error.

What is your setting for the access= property in the CFC cffunction definition?
If you do not state then it is access="public" accessible only on the same page.
You need for the function the definition: access="remote"

Thanks for your help.

I have this set as well. Here's the function
(in folder community\functions\CompleteInfo.cfc)
[code]

   
      
      
          
              SELECT DISTINCT(rb_resident.ReshID),
                rb_resident.BillName AS FullName,
                CONCAT(rb_resident.FirstName, ' ', rb_resident.LastName, ' - Unit: ', rb_resident.UnitNo) AS Suggestion,
                rb_resident.UnitID
            FROM rb_unitcharges INNER JOIN rb_resident ON rb_unitcharges.SiteID = rb_resident.SiteID AND rb_resident.ReshID = rb_unitcharges.ReshID
            WHERE rb_resident.Siteid =  AND rb_resident.FirstName LIKE '#searchvalue#%'
            ORDER BY rb_resident.FirstName, rb_resident.LastName;
          
            
      

[/code]

And here's the autosuggest:
(In folder community\display\dsp_findresidents.cfm)

[code]

[/code]

By the way, I get your "could not be found" message when I have syntax errors in the CFC function for example in the cfquery.

Hi there -

Debugging is on and doesn't return any errors. I've also checked the query in mysql and it returns with no issue.

Any other ideas?

Thanks again for your help.
