cfdocument format=”pdf” marginbottom=”1″ marginleft=”1″ marginright=”1″ alternate colors and font-size so that you can easily see where. I just noticed that the CF7 tag, CFDOCUMENT (as well as the new form of This NAME attribute is simply an interesting alternative. Here’s a. But you are correct, it is now less useful when they are alternatives. I was hoping to see updates in CF10 regarding using CFDocument to.

It still has potential! This tag was actually rather contentious when first introduced, there were many who hated the generated client-side code, and preferred to do the work manually, rightfully insisting that in doing so they’d have greater control and cleaner results.

I’d take this conclusion you’ve reached further, if I was Adobe. Thanks for following up, Ben. But, like Apple does with their spec lockdowns, if Adobe would develop an interface “Coldfusion Safe” library of javascript or jsquery that is plug n play using, say, Filemaker Pro’s ease of use as a benchmark, the community would explode with users: Comments 35 Comments [ Add Comment ] Yup.

It will be regarded more seriously coming from you as a need than from me just pointing out an observed difference that perhaps no one would care about.

I’m getting lines of text within a table cell being split in half by a page break, which is obviously unacceptable. If found, indicate which section of code need to have a page break inserted cfsocument it, and then reproduce the report.

Coldfusion: CFDocument PDF Alternatives – Stack Overflow

Please enter a title. January 13, This is not the norm for me. Does anyone know of an easy alternate to create dynamic pdf that does not use cfdocument?


If any would ask, “but what about spreadsheets? But when is ceases to be so, we need to be willing to deprecate a feature and recommend alternatives.

Thanks, Todd, and happy to help, John. I don’t know how many people here have tried it, but imo, it is an incredibly sophisticated WebSocket implementation.

And I see now where the “commercial” discussion came from. If server side is its shining point then speed and code generation might be the area to focus on. This is what we did to resolve it – placing this code right before the item fo is breaking in the undesired location.

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. Go to original post. I am not at my desk right now to validate, so don’t quote me on that though. The data is in tabular format and the result is terrible. So, once again, no more work and lots of upside, that’s productivity at its best. Wil, Adam, yes, cfmap is one that never felt right for me. The ones web developers care about, not designers.

Way back in you helped me get started with ColdFusion, Ben. I would use iText http: But I’m guessing you must have had a reason to make it a variable. If they are selling CF like this, developers shouldn’t have to purchase cfvocument software to build PDF files! I have a client who has come to me with a hefty project and I am seriously considering doing it in CFML! I’ll put in a report about this to New Atlanta. Don’t forget that Eclipse, which CFB uses, has a rich ecosystem of plugins.


I stress I say “deprecate” and alternafive “obsolete”: I can’t beleivve I am the only developer that has to produce this kind of information.

Cold Fusion – Technical – PDF alternate to cfdocument

They’re still adding UI bumpf that adds no value to the language at all. That is one of my cfdocuemnt issues with a lot of the templating frameworks out there. David, I’m afraid that really has nothing to do with the entry here ok, it’s about PDFs, and so is yours, but it’s a stretch.

It was easy to use well, maybe not in DBML, but we fixed that quickly, and using it got even easier and simpler in subsequent versionsand it just worked. The following code is not overly efficient, in that it recreates the entire report for each instance where a page break needs to be repositioned, but the preliminary test results look good. What should cfdocumeng format attribute of the cfdocument tag be set to?

And of course, if your table headers are needed on each page Why might you alternativd this? We also see new technology is thriving that cfdcument templating from server markup mixing with data to client side templates. I’ve got a patient medical history form that generates a PDF.
