The ColdFusion Extensions for Adobe FlexBuilder were updated in FlexBuilder 2.0.1 and enable the inclusion of ColdFusion 7 dynamically-generated FlashPaper 2-based banded business reports or rich documents (created using the ColdFusion 7 CFDOCUMENT tag) right in your Flex 2.0.1 applications (and they print properly too right from the Flex 2 panel).
The components can of course be pulled from the generated CF/FB Wizard app and used in any way you wish in your own home-grown app, as with all the components we generate/ship with, including the validators and Input masking components, etc (we recognize not everyone will go into production with a generated app! :)
Check it out and enjoy!
Special thanks Mike Nimer and Dean Harmon who suffered my relentless push to get this done and to the Flash player team, the Flex SDK team and the FlexBuilder team, all of whom fixed blocking bugs that made this possible.
In general, I think if you're just using the RDS extensions, and it ain't broke.....
i used the upgrader to update my standalone FB but it didn't seem to upgrade the CF extensions (still seem to have the old ones w/out the new flashpaper bits). is there separate download or something i missed?
I am having the same problem as PaulH...where is the wizard?? or did I not install the CF extensions with the updater?
Damon, any chance you can "free" this zip from FB?
Just checked it out, this is very cool stuff. And yes indeed, the wizard gives you good learning code to build your own home-grown applications with ColdFusion.
I went into the usual RDS viewer, clicked on a Datasource and I cant see where the report section of the wizard is located. I only see Create CFC and I am indeed running CF Flex Extensions ver: 0.5.155475
Any help is greatly appreciated ;)
