Tom Muck's new Dreamweaver MX 2004 Complete Reference is out in stores now :). Pick up your copy today, cause I said so dontcha know...
The latest and greatest Cartweaver 2 update is out, with a bunch of new fixes/improvements, including the ability to enable/disable shipping, sort categories and secondary categories, improved international support for the order form, improved support for Shared SSL and new integration with WorldPay Select Junior, not to mention some great extension work from Angela. All around a great (and rather extensive) update.
I just have to say that I'm loving ColdFusion more and more every day. I've been working on a charting application using CF's CFCHART tag, and by golly that's some sexy stuff. If you've never messed with, do...
It's possible to create either PNG or Flash charts with one simple tag. You can even build drill down pages to get more detail as you go. I'm hoping to have a demo of the charting app I'm working on and running in about a week :).
Just to get your rolling, here's a simple code block for building a chart:
<cfchart format="png" chartheight="300" chartwidth="400"> <cfchartseries type="bar" seriescolor="##003366" serieslabel="ColdFusion"> <cfchartdata item="Nov Cool Factor" value="50"> <cfchartdata item="Dec Cool Factor" value="75"> <cfchartdata item="Jan Cool Factor" value="100"> </cfchartseries> <cfchartseries type="bar" seriescolor="##FFFFCC" serieslabel="ASP VBScript"> <cfchartdata item="Nov Cool Factor" value="100"> <cfchartdata item="Dec Cool Factor" value="75"> <cfchartdata item="Jan Cool Factor" value="50"> </cfchartseries> </cfchart>
This chart plainly shows the affect of ColdFusion on ASP VBScript's cool factor.
