    how do u bind many cfinput texts to 1 cfselect bind?

      Greetings-

       

      I have been enjoying linking multiple cfselects together via binding and now need to do the following:

       

      ~ Give the user a query populated cfselect, let them make a selection

      ~ Populate a second cfselect (no problem with that, I just bind to a cfc and pass it the value from the first cfselect) but the problem is I also need to  populate numerous cfinput type="text" fields, hopefully from the same binding call. I read into the docs and I'm clearly still missing something.

       

      I've been using a typical 2d array with the query results id and value respectively to return to the binding call.... does anyone know if I can simply add additional elements to the array (currently I'm only at arrayvalue[1] and arrayvalue[2]; i could (and would like to) simply build out my binding's query to include all of the data I need for the remaining cfinputs like so:  arrayvalue[3], arrayvalue[4], arrayvalue[5].

       

      Am I over thinking this and making it more difficult than it needs to be?

       

      The final result I'm looking for will give the user details about a specific product (via the cfinput type=text) after they select the original cfselect and then they can drill down to specific products using the second cfselect.

       

      original cfselect (currently working)

       

      second cfselect, populated via a binding call passing it the selected value from the original cfselect (currently working)

       

      number one cfinput type="text".... populated with a value from the binding call from the second cfselect (currently not working)

       

      number two cfinput type="text".... populated with a different value from the binding call from the second cfselect  (currently not working)

       

      number three cfinput type="text".... populated with yet a different value from the binding call from the second cfselect  (currently not working)

       

       

      Thanks in advance,
