Thanks, I tried that one but it only seems to work when the form is flash. One of the requirements of this project is no flash anywhere so that one is out. I don't understand why the "mask" attribute doesn't work in html format grids but that is probably down to the integration with EXT. The more I look at it the more it feels like this component of CF is half-finished.
not meaning to sound rude or anything, but... it's easy t blame the
tools when skills are lacking...
without defining your own css, all your pages will have the [ugly]
default looks defined by the browser rendering them.
same with the cfgrid - if you want it to look different, you have to
define your own style for it to change the default styles.
as for the date: the grid displays the date as your query returns it -
if you want to show the date in a specific format, then make sure your
query returns it in that format. super easy with sql date functions.
many of the new cf ajax features are still lacking in one way or the
other, no doubt. there are still bugs. it is up t you to decide if you
want to use the new features or not. you can always use the libraries
those features are based on instead - still does not mean they will do
exactly what you ant the way you want, because they are, just the same,
based on certain 'defaults' and, just the same, they have bugs as well.
you should have tested the functionality of the new features to make
sure it is acceptable for the project at hand, before giving the client
any timeframes, especially since, obviously, you have not worked with
them before. clearly some wrong assumptions on your part.
again, i do not mean to sound rude at all.
I managed to resolve the issue with dates, that one proved quite easy in the end. The problem with the underline is much more difficult to resolve. I am perfectly capable of using firebug to determine what classes I need to rewrite and to construct the necessary CSS to rewrite them but it just doesn't work. I've looked through all the ext-all.css and ext-all.js and any other file I can find that relates to the grid but nowhere can I find the code that is putting "text-decoration: underline" into the div class for the rows. Skills are not the issue here, obfuscated code is.
