Problem Description:ColdFusion.Grid.refresh('grid01', true); does not preserve the current page of the grid.

Steps to Reproduce:
Create an HTML format grid using CFGRID:
<cfgrid format="html" name="grid01" pagesize=30 stripeRows=false fontSize=10px font="Arial" colHeaderFontSize=8px
            delete="No" selectmode="edit" selectonload="no"

Load the grid with data to exceed the pagesize of 30.
Use the bottom toolbar to navigate to page 2 of the grid.
Select or edit a cell.
Call ColdFusion.Grid.refresh('grid01', true); from a link on the page.

Actual Result:
The grid refreshes, but returns to page 1.

Expected Result:
The grid refreshes and maintains the current page.

Any Workarounds:

Hi Craig, I'm unable to observe the issue on CF11u5. clicking the the refresh button in the bottom toolbar after navigating to page 2 or later, does not reset the grid back to page 1. It stays on the current page. Can you share the relevant code in your :ProjQuote.getData and :ProjQuote.editData method? Also do you observe any errors in your browser debugger when you hit the browse button. You can share the code here or you can mail it to me at

No errors are observed in debugger at any time. Navigate to page 2 or later, then click the link. Grid will refresh with page 1 loaded. I have duplicated these results on a page stripped down to only the essential code. I will try to provide a test case utilizing a demo database when I can find time. Here is the link on the page that calls the refresh: <a href="##" onclick="ColdFusion.Grid.refresh('grid01', true);">Refresh</a> ProjQuote.getData: <cffunction name="getData" access="remote" output="false"> <cfargument name="page"> <cfargument name="pageSize"> <cfargument name="gridsortcolumn" default=""> <cfargument name="gridsortdirection" default=""> <cfset query = 'SELECT * FROM projectquote_lineitems where quoteid = #client.quoteid#'> <cfif NOT Trim(arguments.gridsortcolumn) is ''> <cfset query=query & ' order by #gridsortcolumn# #gridsortdirection#'> <cfelse> <cfset query = query & 'order by id'> </cfif> <cfquery name="get_data" datasource="ftwarehousing"> <cfoutput>#query#</cfoutput> </cfquery> <cfreturn QueryConvertForGrid(get_data, page, pageSize)> </cffunction> ProjQuote.editData: <cffunction name="editData" access="remote"> <cfargument name="gridaction"> <cfargument name="gridrow"> <cfargument name="gridchanged"> <cfif isStruct(gridrow) and isStruct(gridchanged)> <cfif gridaction eq "U"> <cfset colname=structkeylist(gridchanged)> <cfset value=structfind(gridchanged,#colname#)> <cfif isnumeric(value)> <cfset ischar = 0> <cfelse> <cfset ischar = 1> </cfif> <cfquery name="update" datasource="dsn"> update projectquote_lineitems set <cfoutput>#colname#</cfoutput> = <cfif ischar> <cfif value is ''> NULL <cfelse> <cfoutput>'#value#'</cfoutput> </cfif> <cfelse> <cfif value is ''> NULL <cfelse> <cfoutput>#value#</cfoutput> </cfif> </cfif> where id = <cfoutput></cfoutput> </cfquery> <cfelse> <cfquery name="delete" datasource="dsn"> delete from projectquote_lineitems where id = <cfoutput></cfoutput> </cfquery> </cfif> </cfif> </cffunction>

I have found a workaround using the underlying Ext framework that solves the problem in this instance. The workaround preserves the current page while refreshing the grid. This is how ColdFusion.Grid.refresh should work when including the preservepage attribute. Change the refresh link to: <a href="##" onclick="javascript: refreshGrid();">Refresh</a> And add the following function: <InvalidTag type="text/javascript"> function refreshGrid() { grid = ColdFusion.Grid.getGridObject("grid01"); //get the grid object current =;; } </script>
