Coldfusion: CFDocument PDF Alternatives – Stack Overflow
For me it was yet another productivity play. Turns out it’s not as easy as it could be. Ro Twitter Facebook LinkedIn. I have a client who has come to me with laternative hefty project and I am seriously considering doing it in CFML! If we package these extensions up into custom tags we cannot do binding. I feel the same about using the right tools for a job. Look at this code:. Is there a work around?
PDF alternate to cfdocument
I am curious how many people are using the binding features in their code today. I suspect that fixing this project is a fairly large task.
As you may have noticed, my website recently underwent a significant facelift as explained in a blog post made a couple of days ago. If you were to use this code, ColdFusion would generate the necessary Cfdocyment to perform the validation and would embed the generated code and includes to external.
Of course, if you just did that above, you might as well not have bothered, right?
Where does it no longer make sense to use ColdFusion? You can, in fact, send the report out as an attachment to cfmail. This is where its strengths lie. I’ll have to try that out when we move to BD 7.
Cold Fusion – Technical – PDF alternate to cfdocument
And you could even consolidate the validation rules into one place, like this:. The ro web developers care about, not designers. In fact use a template that lets me export reports to word or excel by passing in the extension I want to use along with the other variables I need for the specific report.
Jon you’re a star!
For as many people who have posted about this all over the web, there are only 2 votes for fixing it. It is the difference between cfreport and cfdocument.
It is a shame. All of this legacy stuff needs to be pulled out of the engine and made available as plugins for backwards compatibility.
Well, let’s look at an example:. I have a question I just don’t think it’s in anyone’s interest to let comments on a blog entry cfdocumrnt off on a real tangent.
I appreciate the points you made, and hope to see the CF team focus more on making more awesomeness happen where CF really shines. This might help someone. These all need to be supported by ColdFusion to maintain backwards compatibility, but there just is no good reason to keep advancing them, and even less reason for you to use them in new development.
The airport had only just cleared the backlog from flight delays caused by bad weather earlier in the week. Maybe someone else knows better. What’s a CF shop to do: I had 2 issues with PDF attachments using cfdocument. I Googled and found this in about 1 minute: Then there was MooTools also. In reply to this post by Paul Hastings. If they are selling CF like this, developers shouldn’t have to purchase other software to build PDF files!
I’m curious about something. Are any alternatives available that are free for use? Barry, I’m not clear about your question.
If found, indicate which section of code need to have a page break inserted before it, and then reproduce the report. In my opinion, this bug is a huge deficit in “on-the-fly” PDF building and it’s unbelievable that it’s been a problem for so many years. There is, by far, too much legacy stuff in ColdFusion. I stress I say “deprecate” and not “obsolete”: CFDocument still does not as of 8. Wed, 26 Jan I think it is time to remove this from the document documentation if nobody can make it work If your page has created any other output, don’t forget the Reset attribute as well: I’ve encountered lots of rending cfdocumwnt from when these features were first introduced and they’ve apparently never been upgraded or fixed.
Can you explain what you’re t is? Obviously, a statement like can’t be left unexplained, and indeed, the first few comments on that post asked me to do just that. I am passionate about my code.
Thanks for the explanation Ben: This may not be news to some, but it was to me.
