Unimplemented Attribute(s)

Attribute Description
preservedata
boolean, optional

Optional. "Yes" or "No."

Specifies whether to display the data that was entered into cfform controls in the action page.

"Yes" resets the value of the control to the value submitted when the form is submitted to itself. This works as expected for the cftextinput and cfslider controls.

This attribute can be used only if the form and action are on a single page, or if the action page has a form that contains controls with the same names as the corresponding controls on the form page.

  • transparent: The Flash form honors the z-index of DHTML so you can float items above it. If the Flash form is above any item, transparent regions in the form show the content that is below it.
  • opaque: The Flash form honors the z-index of DHTML so you can float items above it. If the Flash form is above any item, it blocks any content that is below it.
