    This post is still relevant as I just found out having to rebuild my work computer from scratch. I had to figure out all over again what I did to make DW4 work with my mapped drives (set in Local View) and not take forever to open and save files. Basically here's the rundown/summary for anyone in ... read more »

  • Regular Expressions Make CSV Parsing In ColdFusion So Much Easier (And Faster)

    Posted on May 24, 2011 at 2:42 PM

    Here's my final version where I throw the name/value pairs into a structure and get to it that way. So easy! <cfset splitter = #REMatchNoCase("(\w*):\w{2}\|", metainfo)#> <cfset count = 0> <cfloop array="#splitter#" index="i">... read more »

  • Ask Ben: CFImage And Dynamic Image Compression With File Size Limits

    Posted on May 19, 2011 at 3:15 PM

    I solved the problem by forgetting about cfimage altogether and using cfheader/cfcontent instead. I was hoping to be able to view the full-res image in the browser (hence all the cfimage business) but since the file size issue was critical and cfimage kept changing it, now it just sends a pop-up pr... read more »

    Hi, Ben. I'm working on a cfsharepoint integration project that deals with lots image libraries hosted on our sharepoint server. Because sharepoint is behind our firewall I am using cfhttp to retrieve the image then writing it to browser with cfimage for display to the public. The problem I'm hav... read more »

    As usual, I finally figured it out on my own, but this thread provided some key info. Anyway, for anyone who needs to parse through SharePoint's "ows_MetaInfo" field when you're calling getlistitems, here is the code that gave me the name/value pairs: <cfsavecontent variable="met... read more »

    Hello. I would like to use ColdFusion to run the java parsing routine on this web site: http://www.amugofjava.me.uk/2010/02/parsing-sharepoint-metadata.html How do I do this in ColdFusion? I tried plugging this code directly into cfscript but no go. Looking for ideas on how to parse SharePoint ... read more »

  • Creating An Infinite Scroll Effect With jQuery And ColdFusion

    Posted on Feb 1, 2011 at 1:47 PM

    Nevermind, I eventually figured it out, I was just being lazy at first. :) The incredible simple solution is to change the $( window ).bind handler from window to "input" (the quotes are required around input) then change the action from "scroll resize" to just "click"... read more »

  • Creating An Infinite Scroll Effect With jQuery And ColdFusion

    Posted on Feb 1, 2011 at 11:40 AM

    Can someone please post a quick update on how you would implement this with a "More Button" click rather than plain scrolling? For my application I would like users to click a button to dynamically load more content at the bottom of the transcript. Thanks.... read more »

    By the way, my DW CS3 started crashing the other day. Nothing had changed that I was aware of, then I found this tidbit about "Dreamweaver CS3 crashes after Daylight Savings Time ends" and it fixed my problem. This is almost starting to sound like Microsoft-land. God, Adobe needs a new IDE. ht... read more »

  • Learning ColdFusion 8: CFThread Part I - Data Exchange

    Posted on Jul 26, 2008 at 2:27 PM

    Thanks. I found a workaround. I was able to remove the child threads that are processing the input and error streams by combining the output into a single stream using the magic "2>&1" switch at the end of my command line. I posted full details at http://cfsearching.blogspot.com/2008/01/using... read more »

  • Learning ColdFusion 8: CFThread Part I - Data Exchange

    Posted on Jul 25, 2008 at 4:22 PM

    I know ColdFusion does not allow you to launch threads within threads, but theoretically is it possible using java inside a cfscript or something like that? I have an ajax process bar that reports progress from an executable's line-by-line output, but for the ajax to work I have to call the CFC tha... read more »

    @Gerald The Houseoffusion forums are atrocious, even though I agree they contain useful info and always come up at the top of Google. I actually did sign up for the forum but I did not have luck posting for some reason. They need a serious upgrade. The usability/style/look/feel/lack of features ... read more »

    Posted on Feb 21, 2008 at 6:13 PM

    I finally decided to plunge into DW CS3 because I feel like I'm now an "old timer" when I use Homesite. So far I only have two real efficiency-sapping complaints. If someone can help me fix them I will be happy. 1) The shift+F1 tag help does not always bring up "help", especially for some of the... read more »
