The online ColdFusion / CFML community website

Readers of mine will know I'm a big fan of jQuery. Now, we have a great Ajaxified grid in CF8, but a friend wrote to ask me how to use jqGrid ( with ColdFusion. No problem: I am a freaking guru, after all!

Four and a half hours later, a broken man, having enlisted help from my colleague, Maciej, I finally have the answer...

Here's the HTML:

<title>jqGrid Demo</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="/jqGrid-3.3/themes/basic/grid.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="/jqGrid-3.3/themes/jqModal.css" />
<script src="/jqGrid-3.3/jquery.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="/jqGrid-3.3/jquery.jqGrid.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="/jqGrid-3.3/js/jqModal.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="/jqGrid-3.3/js/jqDnR.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
datatype: 'json',
colNames:['Inv No','Date', 'Amount','Tax','Total','Notes'],
colModel :[
{name:'id',index:'id', width:60, sorttype:"int"},
{name:'invdate',index:'invdate', width:90, sorttype:"date"},
{name:'amount',index:'amount', width:80, align:"right",sorttype:"float"},
{name:'tax',index:'tax', width:80, align:"right",sorttype:"float"},
{name:'total',index:'total', width:80,align:"right",sorttype:"float"},
{name:'note',index:'note', width:150, sortable:false}],
pager: $('#pager'),
sortorder: "desc",
viewrecords: true,
imgpath: '/jqGrid-3.3/themes/basic/images',
caption: 'Invoices',
jsonReader: {
root: "ROWS",
page: "PAGE",
total: "TOTAL",
cell: "",
id: "id"
<table id="list" class="scroll"> <div id="pager" class="scroll" style="text-align:center;"> </body>

And here's the CFC that it calls for data:

<cfcomponent displayname="InvoiceMgr" extends="halogen.Object" output="false">
<cffunction name="getInvoices" access="remote" output="false" returnformat="json">
<cfset invoices = ArrayNew(1) />
<cfquery datasource="test" name="q">
SELECT * FROM invheader
<cfloop query="q">
<cfset invoices[currentrow] = [#invid#, '#invdate#', #amount#, #tax#, #total#, #note#]>
<cfset str = {total=1, page=1, records=#q.recordcount#, rows=invoices}>
<cfreturn str />

Just in case you ever need to know...

I've got a basic jqgrid working. Great! So how do I pass more arguements to the cfc? Say I only want to see a certain invoice? I've been search every where for the answer. So, how do I do that?

PayPal Cart Integration

Hey guys,I know I haven't been on here in a little while. I'm hoping one of you will have some information on this...A client of mine asked me to integrate PayPal into their existing custom shopping cart. It's just the typical old PayFlow-style, send the browser to PayPal and then bring them back afterward. I read through all the documentation and I've got it creating the form and sending to PayPal and it all works.Now PayPal says form encryption is not required, although they also say you…See More
