Hi ColdFusion Guru's,
Can you point me in a good direction for this project?
I want to build an app where the user will have a deck of 3 by 5 cards on the screen.
The user will type in some data on each 3x5 card and then drag it to a location on the screen.
The user needs to be able to flip through the deck of cards and lay them out on the screen.
There will be a SQL database bihind it to store the data and position of the cards.
I'm thinking there must be some sort of existing app I can build on.
Is this ColdFusion or Ajax or what.
And to minimize annoying page refreshes, I suggest you'll want to use a lot of AJAX to help with continually tracking and saving card positions, content, etc.
Also, you'll definitely want to carefully plot out how all the peices of this need to work together. Otherwise, you'll end up with a pile of CF/JS/HTML/CSS spaghetti that will be impossible to manage, much less expand upon in the future.
You might want to write your front end in flash.
