Do I am the only one on Earth who need to return a string
instead of a numeric value when using a CFDIV-BIND on a CFC? My
god! this is hard to find anybody who went to the same thing! Or I
am missing something about the real utilitity we suppose to do with
a CFDIV or somebody will have to explain to me! Sorry, this comment
is after having passed many hours (thinking I will find my answer
Alright, here is what I need to do. I am trying to create a
chat using the new features of CF8. I am very close to achieve the
first step of my project. So let say that you have the big board
where text will appear as users will type their messages and than a
little text field at the bottom where the user will type is
I want to prove a point I am reading since long time now
about the Ajax and CF8 has just reinforce it when starting to
explain that we can have automated update if we are calling our
functions with asynchronous methods. This what I want to do and I
am trying to use a CFDIV to that where I am passing the CFC command
in the BIND. the system is always returning me that the "return"
cannot be converted as numeric. Well, my return is in fact a table
of all the messages in the database - formatted to display the
time, the user and the message or each record.
I can see I am not using the technology correctly at this
moment but if anybody know anything that can redirect me to a good
explication (my brain need to understand why now as it is not logic
at the moment - why I cannot push in the CFDIV whatever I want?).
You will find some code for whom will better understand like
Oups! It mights be not the fault of the CFDIV! sorry about my
reaction. after I wrote my previous thread, I decided to test
another way and to create a page where the BIND will go directly to
that page (url:readMessages.cfm) is demonstrating that I can put
whatever I want in that CF-DIV! But, when invoking again the CFC
function, I've got the same error (from that new page).
