Example

The following example shows how a CFC function that is called by an Ajax format cfgrid tag bind attribute. uses the QueryConvertForGrid function to prepare query data to return to the grid. The CFML page with the cfgrid tag has the following code:

<cfform> 
<cfgrid format="html" name="grid01" pagesize=5 sort=true 
bind="cfc:places.getData({cfgridpage},{cfgridpagesize}, 
{cfgridsortcolumn},{cfgridsortdirection})" selectMode="row"> 
<cfgridcolumn name="Emp_ID" display=true header="Employee ID"/> 
<cfgridcolumn name="FirstName" display=true header="Name"/> 
<cfgridcolumn name="Email" display=true header="Email"/> 
</cfgrid> 
</cfform>

The getData function in the places.cfc page has the following code:

<cffunction name="getData" access="remote" output="false"> 
<cfargument name="page"> 
<cfargument name="pageSize"> 
<cfargument name="gridsortcolumn"> 
<cfargument name="gridstartdirection"> 
<cfset query = "SELECT Emp_ID, FirstName, EMail 
FROM Employees" > 
<cfif gridsortcolumn neq "" or gridstartdirection neq ""> 
<cfset query=query & " order by #gridsortcolumn# 
#gridstartdirection#"> 
</cfif> 
<cfquery name="team" datasource="cfdocexamples"> 
<cfoutput>#query#</cfoutput> 
</cfquery> 
<cfreturn QueryConvertForGrid(team, page, pageSize)> 
</cffunction>
