Need help with cfdiv

Hi,

I have the following code example from Adobe's online Resource Center regarding the use of cfdiv.  Is there a way to refresh the content of divsource.cfm by clicking a button on cfdivtag.cfm without refreshing the entire main page "cfdivtag.cfm"???

NOTE: I'm using ColdFusion 8.

The cfdivtag.cfm file, the main application file, has the following contents:
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>cfdiv Example</title>
</head>

<body>
<cfform>
    <cfinput name="tinput1" type="text">
</cfform>

<h3> using a div</h3>
<cfdiv bind="url:divsource.cfm?InputText={tinput1}" ID="theDiv"
        style="background-color:##CCffFF; color:red; height:350"/>
</body>
</html>

The divsource.cfm file that defines the contents of the div region has the following code:
<h3>Echoing main page input:</h3>
<cfoutput>
    <cfif isdefined("url.InputText") AND url.InputText NEQ "">
        #url.InputText#
    <cfelse>
        No input
    </cfif>
</cfoutput>

Many thanks in advance.

Yes - not sure if you require the bind attribute or not, but my applications typically are more complex than that, so I use  ColdFusion.navigate() function.

This is a javascript function that will call a URL and put the contents into the container you specify (in this case your cfdiv)
