CFPARAM for Simple String Validation

coldfusion With the addition of a dozen new type values for the cfparam tag in ColdFusion 7, it has become a handy tool for validation.

I have a little trick for those of you who are using earlier versions of ColdFusion that don't support the new types for validation.

CFFUNCTION and CFARGUMENT don't support new types in ColdFusion 7

coldfusion One thing I just realized today - that is a bummer, is that the new types supported by cfparam, and IsValid (eg integer, email, zipcode) in ColdFusion 7 are not supported by the returntype attribute in CFFUNCTION, and not supported in the type attribute of CFARGUMENT. Whats up with that?

6 Tags for ColdFusion beginners

coldfusion The ColdFusion Developers Journal has an article called: CF Six Pack by Greg Cerveny which lists 6 tags new developers should be using.

I pretty much agree with all the tags on the list, except for cfsetting, I think if your a newbie, just enable whitespace suppression in the CF admin.
