CFFormItem Not Visible in Safari on Windows, Chrome

Sep 11, 2008 9:15 AM

We have flash forms that work great in IE and Firefox, but in Safari on Windows and in Google Chrome the items are not visible. They work in Safari on Mac.

    Hello... have you had any luck getting an answer for this issue... we currently have the same issue. We have a cfformitem type="text" that does not show in the flash form.

    Thanks.

    Hi there,

    any news for this topic ?

    Unfortunately, last update of flash player did not resolve this issue.

    Google Chrome still refuse to display correctly flash forms ...

    Any upgrade of CF or tip/trick anywhere ?

    Does anyone have an update on this issue?  I still can't get CFFORMITEM to work in the Chrome browser.

    Can you post some code that demonstrates this?

    Even a simple example should demonstrate the issue here.

     

    <cfform format="flash" name="FormItemTest" preloader="false">

         <cfformitem type="text">This doesn't display in Chrome.</cfformitem>

    </cfform>

     

    It's not just cfformitem either:

     

    http://www.asfusion.com/examples/item/filtering-records-on-a-cfform-gr id

     

    Viewed in IE or FF will shows different behaviour than in Chrome. The cfselect doesn't prime itself using the query data.

     

    We've been hit with this problem too. Presently the only advice we can give to users is to use a different browser.

    I see what you mean, yeah. There has been a bug raised for this - http://cfbugs.adobe.com/cfbugreport/flexbugui/cfbugtracker/main.html#b ugId=81584 - you might want to go vote for it.

    Or, more realistically: you stop using <cfform format="flash"> :-/

    I am having the same problem with a <cfform>. In Chrome and Safari, it is not populating the <cfselect>s with database data.

     

    The <cfselects> are working correctly in Opera, Firefox, and Internet Explorer on Windows.

    Hi all,

     

    we have the same problem on http://www.ccli.de/about/contact.cfm and http://www.ccli.co.uk/about/contact.cfm with many different forms.

    The CFFormItems are not visible, but also the CFSelect is not populated.

     

    Has anybody found a solution to this? The number of Chrome users we have on our websites is greatly increasing, so we want to do something about it.

    It is hard for me to believe that Adobe has not fixed this in this long time period.

     

    If there is no way to fix those flash forms what would be the best and fastest work around? Convert to HTML and basically recreate the form plus include a captcha to prevent spam? Or does anybody have a better way of getting forms these forms to work on all browsers?

     

    I really appreciate your help.

     

    All best,

    Micha

    I heard that this issue has been fixed in CF9. Have a look at http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/847/cpsid_84726.html

    cfform (Flash)

    Flash forms created using cfform format="flash" do not render correctly in Google Chrome.

     

    You will have to pay to get this upgrade for your server...
    If you buy and install CF9 please let us know if your forms work properly on Google Chrome.

    I have a dev server and production server

    Dev is at version 9,0,1,274733

    I can confirm that this is NOT fixed on my dev server running the Developer version.

    Yes, now that Chrome is officially number 2 in the browser world - this is now a much higher profile issue for us as well. To tear down our beautiful tabbed forms at this point is certainly not ideal (to say the least). Thanks.

    Yup, this is totally retarted.  I've been telling everyone at our company not to use chrome if they want to access our internal websites.

    I am also confirming that on CF9 (enterprise), Flashforms do not work on Chrome and Safari on Windows.  Had we known that Flash forms would not be supported across broswers (an assumption you don't usually make with Flash), we never would have implented on our websites.  Changing them all to HTML is a real bummer.  Yes, going forward, we will never use Flash forms again.

    I'm no techy, but i found that if you use the bind attribute, and don't have the text between the tags, the text will be visible in cfformitem text. eg.

     

    <cfformitem type="text" bind="Enter the candidate's email address and number" style="font-weight:bold;"></cfformitem>

     

    dunno about the dropdown problem though....would be great if someones got an answer for that.

    For not being a techy, you seemed to solved years of anguish. LOL! Thanks, That worked like a charm.
