Re: CF8 & AJAX to populate form fields
I'd use a different approach altogether. I wouldn't ask anyone to make a
single selection from a list of 4500 names. I'd offer a text box and ask for
part of the username. Then I present the matching records. They could select
the one they want and that's when I'd populate the form fields.
If the initial search resulted in exactly one match, I'd use cflocation to get
to the page with the form instead of presenting that single record to the user.
