Post Detail


You probably already knew that you could supply a description and a license using the configuration file. This is an example of a basic extension.

What you may not know is that you can point to html files for the content. This is really helpful when you have a ton of text for your description or license. Simply create a folder in your extension named install and create an html file. From there you can just specify the name of the file that you are using for either.

Yeah, that could definitely be good for a serious license (unlike mine which says, "Just don't sue me").

ps. I still haven't thought of an Extension idea for CFBuilder contest.

Did you ever resolve the issue of dynamically populating a list control with images.

I am in a similar boat...I want a client to be able to update an XML file to add or remove item listings. And I want to display a list of images based on that XML.

And I want to resize them to a given width (ie: 200 pixels wide).

For the life of me I cannot find a good example. (I hate the idea of embedding and re-compiling every update.)
