We recently updated from CF8 to CF11. Getting ready to create interfaces with several new databases. Need to use something like CFGRID in new forms, but since that is a Flash form component and Flash forms are deprecated in CF11, what is the alternative for non-Flash forms for those who need a sub-form with ADD/EDIT/DELETE features like CFGRID? Looks like spreadsheets feature is just for data output/display, not data input.

Thanks Carl. I have noticed that jQuery seems to be the answer. Just wanted to check that I was not overlooking something in the new version.

I'd recommend moving away from CFGRID and using a community-supported UI library that does what you need, such as jQuery and JQGrid or Datatables.  There are several JavaScript grid controls/libraries out there.
