CFCHART bug in CHF 2

Mar 30, 2007 7:35 AM

I believe I have found a bug in the CFCHART fix for Cumulative HotFix 2 (

I have the following CFCHART call which works w/o the patch installed:

<cfset colors ="ff0000,00ff00,0000ff,ffff00,ff00ff,00ffff,ffcc00,ff00cc,f0ccf0,ccff 00,cc00ff">
<cfchart showlegend="no" format="flash" tipstyle="mouseover" rotated="yes" show3d="yes" backgroundcolor="ffffff">
<cfchartseries type="pie" query="qryGetResults" valuecolumn="numresp" itemcolumn="answerds" colorlist="#colors#">

However when I run the page with the hotfix installed it fails with a Null Pointer Exception and indicates the the cfchartseries call is the line in question. It does this whether I specify the colorlist attribute or not. The query is not failing in either case, so I am pretty sure that the changes to CFCHART in the hotfix are causing the issue.

I am not sure how to submit a formal bug to Adobe, but figured at least this is a good start.

    If only it was that easy seancoyne

    back without Hotfix 2 my newly reinstalled CFMX 7.02 doesn't support any of my previously working flash forms in any browser other than Firefox


    The smiley above doesn't quite express how I feel at the moment

    Even abobe's contact us page gives a 404 page not found error.

    Still waiting for a call back from Tech Support

    All, I have downloaded the latest update to CHF702002, and still receiving a null pointer exception.
    Exact Error: coldfusion.graph.Graph.getWebChartsContentXml(

    These charts worked prior to CHF702002... any insights??

    Not sure if this has been noted, however, this issue appears to only affect pie charts, as our scripts that render bar-charts are still working.
