I'm impressed with the possibilities of CFGRID and wonder if anyone has used it as an admin panel.
Here's the scenario.
I build an event registration template which inserts user information in a database. Then the sponsors of the event
want to view that information so that they can plan for a meeting-place of suitable size, and so on. Then there are
sometimes last-minute changes and the sponsor needs to email the registrants. The sponsor also needs to be
able to edit a user's information, delete and add users, and, in general, be in charge of the data.
I was thinking of building various views to accomplish all this for the sponsors, but when I saw CFGRID, it
seemed like an all-in-one answer.
Has anyone used CFGRID in this way before? And is it appropriate for a scenario like this.
I am less enthusiastic about cfgrid. But then again, I've only looked at the flash and applet formats. The flash format, when I was looking at it, in version 7, was read only so it had limited usefulness.
The applet version was ok in version 4.5 but from version 6 onwards it became very keyboard unfriendly. We have a couple of data maintenance pages that use grids. I might have to use them but I don't have to like them.
