Custom Controls

The cfapplet tag allows you to use custom Java controls within your ColdFusion pages as if they were native ColdFusion tags, like cftree and cfgrid. Although it isn’t required that you use cfapplet within a cfform block, this is generally where the tag is used the most. For example, you might have a Java applet called Menu that acts as an expandable/collapsible menu you’d like to use in a ColdFusion application. In order to call a custom Java applet, it first has to be registered with the ColdFusion Administrator (Figure 10-15).

To register a custom Java applet, you need to complete the following steps:

  1. Open the ColdFusion Administrator, and click on the Java Applets link.
