Subject Re: Java for generating suggestion-list
Date Mon, 12 Jan 2009 13:06:05 GMT
In searching for information on how to use Java generated data as a 
*suggestion* list in a CFORM multivaluefield I came across the 3 month 
old email thread below.

I am interested in using this... did it get resolved?

Regards,
David Legg
