Inserting ColdFusion hidden fields

Inserting ColdFusion hidden fields

You can visually insert a ColdFusion hidden field into your form and set its properties. Use hidden fields to store and submit information that the user does not enter. The information is hidden from the user.

This Dreamweaver enhancement is only available if you have access to a computer running ColdFusion MX 7 or later. For more information, see Enabling the ColdFusion enhancements.

To visually insert a ColdFusion hidden field:

  1. In Design view, place the insertion point inside the form outline.
  2. In the CFForm category of the Insert bar, click the CF Hidden Field icon.

    A marker appears in the ColdFusion form. If you don’t see the marker, select View > Visual Aids > Invisible Elements.

  3. In the Property inspector, set the hidden field properties.

    For more information, click the Help icon in the Property inspector.
