Cf9 and cfgrid issue

Hello experts.
I have a problem with my cfgrid's.
Since i changed from cf8 to cf9 i get the following error:
Attribute validation error for the CFGRID tag.
height/width attribute cannot be a percentage value.

My Grid:
<cfgrid name="Texttablegrid" format="html" pagesize="30" insert = "Yes"   sort="yes" width="100%"
    rowheaderbold="yes" colHeaderBold = "Yes"    pictureBar="yes" hspace="0" vspace="0"  bind="cfc:cfc.Texttable.getTexttable({cfgridpage},{cfgridpagesize},{cfgridsortcolumn},{cfgridsortdirection},{filtercolumn},{filter})" selectmode="edit" onchange= "cfc:cfc.Texttable.updateTexttable({cfGridAction},{cfgridrow},{cfgridchanged})">
      <cfgridcolumn name="TABLE_ID" header="Table_id"  select="no" display="false"/>
      <cfgridcolumn name="Text_ID" header="Text ID" type="numeric" numberformat="9" display="false"/>
      <cfgridcolumn name="TEXT" header="Text" />
      <cfgridcolumn name="LangID" header="Language ID" type="numeric"/>

you cannot set the width:100% in the cfgrid in coldfusion 9. Yuo can either user autowidth or use a static width in pixels.

2. if you have concerns about the screen resolution, just detect the screen width and deduct domeamount of pixels to create a div of that width and inside that div, create your cfgrid. it works flwlessly


let me know if you need more clarity

Hi myselfrandhawa
Can you help me with the second way?
I was thinking to use javascript to get the width of the div where i have placed my cfrid.
Because coldfusion doesn't read js variables i tried to set a cookie and reload the page but i didn't get it work.

Some else.
I set width="autowidth"   to get width="100%" but i get an error in firebug:
autowidth is not defined

Don't answer my last comment. I change it to autoWidth = "Yes"  .

other way will be to pass the width through the url like suppose you are passing some variable in the address bar as:

<a hef="abc.cfm?id=#id#" + "&size=" + screen.width;>bac</a>

so bac page u get size of the window page an dthen based on that just deduct some amount like size-100 to match the screen page size and create a scrolling div and inside the div call the cfgrid tag

all done
