I am using cftree and trying to bind to cfinput type="text. I am able to bind cddiv if the cftree format  is html without any issue. But I am getting binding error if cftree format is applet.

Here is the code

<cfform name="f1">
      <cftree  name="tree1" >
            <cftreeitem value="1" parent="0" display="Root Node"/>
            <cftreeitem value="2" parent="1" display="Branch 1"/>
            <cftreeitem value="3" parent="1" display="Branch 2"/>
            <cftreeitem value="21" parent="2" display="Branch 1.1"/>
            <cftreeitem value="22" parent="2" display="Branch 1.2"/>
            <cftreeitem value="31" parent="3" display="Branch 2.1"/>
            <cftreeitem value="32" parent="3" display="Branch 2.2"/>
            <cftreeitem value="33" parent="3" display="Branch 2.3"/>
      </cftree>
      <cfinput type="text" name="dbgText" bindOnLoad = "no" bind="{tree1.node@click}"/>

Applets and binding weren't meant to work together.  Binding is a newer feature. It uses javascript and relies on the presence of html/DOM elements.  Applets are totally different. They run as an embedded object in the browser. So it doesn't create those DOM elements .

Does the applet version support an onChange or onClick event? (I haven't used it in years). If so, perhaps you could use that to call some javascript that updates the the input value.

Why the B grade? Sometimes the correct answer is "you can't".  The javascript binding just wasn't designed to work with the older applets. Not what you want to hear, but unfortunately that is the reality of it.  If you don't wish to pursue alternatives, that's up to you.  But "not possible" is a valid answer on EE.

Welcome to EE.  Grading's a little different on EE.  If a correct answer was provided it's usually given an "A".  "B" grades usually signify the expert didn't fully answer the question, which happens sometimes. But in those cases you should ask for clarification if needed.  However, if the right answer is "it's just not possible" it should be given an A grade.

Well, most experts take pride in providing thorough and accurate answers and grading is seen as a reflection of how well they did that.
