Hi there.  I tried to submit to a CFDIV from a CFFORM on the same page but it appears that the check box's value is always the same regardless if it is checked or not.

Can somebody help?

Thanks in advance.

      <input name="Search3" type="text" />
      <input name="Submit" type="button" value="SEARCH" onClick="ColdFusion.Ajax.submitForm("This");" />
   </form>
   <cfdiv id="SearchResult" bind="url:SampleDivSubmitResults.cfm?Search={Search}&Search2={Search2}&Search3={Search3}" />
</body>

This is what it looks like when it is checked (notice the value in search 2) This is what it looks like when it is unchecked (notice the value in search 2 is still there) This is what it looks like when it is unchecked (notice the value in search 2 is still there) This is what it looks like when it is checked (notice the value in search 2)

Try to replace with :


<input name="Search2" type="checkbox" value="checkedBoxValue" onclick="this.value = (this.checked?'checkedBoxValue':'')" />

the check box's value is always the same regardless if it is checked or not

That's because a checkbox's value never changes, it's state is what changes (checked or unchecked)

I'm not real familiar with the ajax stuff.  But I'm not sure there's a slick way to conditionally pass the "value" the way you want.  leakim971's suggestion worked for me, with the addition of this code

<input name="Search2" type="checkbox" value="checkedBoxValue" onclick="this.value = (this.checked?'checkedBoxValue':'')" />
...
<cfdiv id="SearchResult" bind="url:SampleDivSubmitResults.cfm?Search={Search}&Search2={Search2.value@click}&Search3={Search3}" />

I think you should be using ColdFusion.navigate

It has the built in ability to post of form asynchronously and it allows you to provide a target (which would be the CFDIV).

I think this is a very simple way of doing what you are attempting

Be sure to check the user comments at the bottom of that page.  Last time I used it, the parameter order was wrong ... which caused me some confusion at first ;-)

> I think you should be using ColdFusion.navigate

What's the goal?  Do you want to update the cfdiv only when the form is submitted OR whenever any of the form fields changes? If it's the former, then gdemaria's suggestion is the way to go. If it's the latter, then use a bind.

I am looking to bind multiple fields to a CFDIV. So, if the form changes in value, I would like it to submit to the CFDIV on the same page.

It is easy to bind it to a single field but I am not sure how to bind it to the whole form itself.

Thanks in advance.

The first 2 post does work and you get all the form fields in the div, including the checkbox attribute.

<head>
<title></title>

<body>
   <cfform name="FormSearch" id="FormSearch">
      <cfinput name="Search" type="text" />
      <input name="Search2" type="checkbox" onclick="this.value = (this.checked?'checkedBoxValue':'')"/>
      <cfinput name="Search3" type="text" />
   </cfform>
   
<cfdiv bind="search={Search@keyup},checkbox={Search2.value@click},Search3={Search3@keyup}" id="SearchResult"/>
</body>
</html>
