Hi Scott, Could you please post a standalone repro case I could try on my end? CF may be writing the JS in the wrong order. Thanks!, -Aaron

Here are the steps to repro:- 1. Place the enclosed files in ColdFusion root. 2. Run the enclosed cflayout-source.cfm with ?cfdebug appended in the URL. For eg http://ip:port/cflayout-source.cfm?cfdebug 3. On page load, the below error occurs error:http: Error processing JavaScript in markup for element cflayout-source.cfm <cflayout name="theLayout" type="accordion"> <cflayoutarea position="center" title="MyTitle" name="theCfLayoutarea" source="./sourceFile.cfm" > </cflayoutarea> </cflayout> sourceFile.cfm <cfchart format="html" type="bar"> <cfchartseries > <cfchartdata item="2009" value=20> <cfchartdata item="2010" value=40> <cfchartdata item="2011" value=60> </cfchartseries> </cfchart>

This is a known issue with client side rendering of charts. We will be documenting this.

Hi Dattanand, What is a known issue? The code I posted below runs with no error in CF11 Update 5. So what will be documented? Thanks!, -Aaron

Hi Dattanand, Thank you very much for the repro case. I've also confirmed the issue in CF10, so this does not look like a regression. Also, the ?cfdebug URL parameter wasn't required. Thanks!, -Aaron
