Need to pass a variable with a cfdiv

I need to pass a url variable to the bind page in a cfdiv. Below is what I have but when it loads I receive the error: permission denied.

<cfdiv id="thediv" bind="url:/mysite/mydir/mypage.cfm?mykey=#url.meykey#" />

Thank you.

On which page?

The code you posted works fine as long as #url.meyKey# (is that a typo?) is defined on the page containing the CFDIV:

testPage.cfm
<!--- define variable you're passing --->
<cfset url.meykey = "testing">
<cfdiv id="thediv" bind="url:/mysite/mydir/mypage.cfm?mykey=#url.meykey#" />

/mysite/mydir/mypage.cfm
MyPage.cfm
<cfdump var="#URL#">

result:
MyPage.cfm
struct
     _cf_containerId | thediv  
     mykey              |  testing

The first page, testPage.cfm has url.mykey in the URL already. I get an undefined message in IE.

Well according to the error message "mykey" isn't in the URL already.  On "testPage.cfm", dump the URL scope before the CFDIV.  Does it contain "mykey"?

testPage.cfm
      <cfdump var="#URL#">
      <cfdiv id="thediv" bind="url:/mysite/mydir/mypage.cfm?mykey=#url.meykey#" />

Also double check the spelling of the variable name. Is it "myKey" or "meyKey"?

You may need to set a default value for it w/cfparam so that it always exists. I don't know which variable name is correct, so I'll use "myKey"

 testPage.cfm
      <cfparam name="url.mykey" default="some default value here">
      <cfdiv id="thediv" bind="url:/mysite/mydir/mypage.cfm?mykey=#url.mykey#" />

Wait a sec ... did you edit the question? That's a different error altogether. Can you please post the complete error message as well as the type of error (CF error, ajax logs, ....)

It is working now. The error was different in Firefox than in IE so I thought it had changed.
