Are you talking about something like this? I see this doesn't work in CF9 either. <cfchart style="C:\ColdFusion9\wwwroot\bugs\CF-3840078\blue.xml"> <cfchartseries type="bar" > <cfchartdata item="yes" value="10"> <cfchartdata item="no" value="20"> </cfchartseries> </cfchart>

#expandPath('/')&'foo.xml'# works in CF9 here.

Giving absolute path of xml file doesnt work in CF9 as well. <cfchart style=#expandPath('/')&'test.xml'#> <cfchartseries type="bar" > <cfchartdata item="yes" value="10"> <cfchartdata item="no" value="20"> </cfchartseries> </cfchart> I tried in Windows and Linux and this piece of code doesn't work in either. Can you please attach the files. (Comment added from ex-user id:nawani)
