Am using Dreamweaver 8 and CF MX 7. All the CFCs I've created
were created manually, not using Dreamweaver. I then copy the CFC,
and modify it as needed for other applications in different
folders. But all apps are part of the same SITE.
However, when I click IN and OUT of a template that contains
a CFINVOKE to a CFC, I get a quick pop-up message that says:
"The required component could not be found at the specified
location." I just click OK, the message goes away. The programs and
templates work fine. I probably have a dozen report forms that
INVOKE a CFC (all in the same site) but I did not create any of the
CFCs in Dreamweaver, just coded them manually.
Is there some way to get rid of this message? Or is this
normal when you DON'T create the CFC with Dreamweaver? When I click
on APPLICATIONS/COMPONENTS, it tells me "THERE ARE NO CFCs DEFINED
IN THE CURRENT SITE." But they are there, and I'm using them.
I'd like to (but not totally necessary) inspect/modify the
CFCs in Dreamweaver. But it tells me the first thing I need to do
is "CREATE A SITE FOR THIS FILE", followed by the other 3
instructions related to DOCUMENT TYPE, TESTING SERVER, and RDS
I've already created the site in Dreamweaver. So I guess the
question is: "HOW DO YOU -ADD- A CFC, SO YOU CAN WORK WITH IT IN
DREAMWEAVER, WHEN YOU'VE ALREADY CREATED THE SITE? Every time I
experiment, Dreamweaver seems to always want me to create a SITE.
But my application has been using the same "site" for 5 years, it's
already created. So not sure what is wrong.
Would appreciate any advice on either how to get rid of the
error message, or how to ADD a CFC created manually to Dreamweaver
when you've already created the site. Any advice would be greatly
appreciated. Thank you.
Thanks for the response. Glad you found a way to get your
CFCs to show up in Dreamweaver. However, I need to keep my site in
a virtual folder, so that I know the web server is working
correctly. Otherwise, I would be using "hard coded" URLs to
run/test my CFM files. It's important for my "development"
environment to mimic the production environment (production server
also has site in virtual folder) to be certain that programs that
run fine on "development", run fine on "production."
So I guess the million dollar question is: Is there some way
to get Dreamweaver to recognize CFCs located in sites where the
site root is in a virtual folder?
I may have better luck getting the answer on the Dreamweaver
forum. But maybe someone here might now. Many thanks again for
getting back. Good luck with your CF development.
