Brililant Replacement
CFTree has always been an annoyance - am very glad these obviously very talented coders created such a good replacement. They were also on hand very quickly with any questions I had. Thank you!!!

Great control & great support
This tag works great. Easy to output queries into navigational trees with parent/child relationships.
And the support from the developer is great. I had some questions and the developer answered them for me straight away. Highly recommended.

Outstanding Support
This tag works great and is easy to set up and customize. Support from CF_Tagstore has been amazing. These guys have really gone the extra mile to help this relatively inexperienced CF'er!!

What a sweet little tag!
Very rarely is there a tag that is simple to use and adds great value and functionality to a web application. CF_TreeControl is just that tag.

Rarely do I leave a comment for something that I have paid for but this tag and its developer(s) truly deserves no less that an A+ rating and the best kudos possible.

I want to thank you guys for giving me a simple, cost-effective and truly useful solution to my navigation woes!!

Great Tag - Better Support
Quite simply, the customer service I've received from digital-crew before and after the purchase of the tag has been outstanding.

This is the way customer sevice should be everywhere!

Disregard Previous negative comment
I was hasty in posting a negative comment. The developer did not receive my email and has responded. The product could use more examples but is a great product!

Much Faster than CFTREE
Just the tag I've been looking for to
replace CFTREE and it's associated Java
related problems.
Works great.

A very good alternative
If you are in need of a lot of control over the tree, I would highly suggest just requesting the unecrypted version to begin with. Otherwise, nice alternative if you like cftree but want to get around applet related problems, or the flash versions not being able to customize much. Had some issues originally, but were resolved. Looking forward to browsing the store for other interesting tags!

Suggested Uses

CF_TreeControl is an ideal replacement of the built-in ColdFusion Tag CFTREE.

Users do not have to download and install an applet or JAR file and the DHTML version is significantly faster as a result. All the functionality of CFTREE has been emulated in DHTML so modifying your existing code has been made as easy as possible.

Use CF_TreeControl as a site navigation, Intranet Project Navigation or a document/file structure.

Use Javascript or Links as the target of each node. Use a query object with the tag to make dynamic navigation for your website, intranet or online application.

Un-Encrypted Version

If you require the unencrypted version of CF_TreeControl please email

Available Styles

CF_TreeControl is easy to modify to suit your needs. You can add your own custom styles, change the icons and CSS or modify existing styles.

There are 4 packaged styles with the component: Default, Windows, Java and Mac
