  • A Better Understanding Of MVC (Model-View-Controller) Thanks To Steven Neiland

    Posted on May 22, 2012 at 12:07 PM

    Andy - that will often be dictated by your framework. No reason to roll your own MVC architecture when there are so many good ones already defined. In my Model-Glue applications for example, each subsection of the app has its own folder, and in each of those folders is a subfolder for the controller... read more »

  • Ask Ben: Converting a Query to an Array

    Posted on May 27, 2010 at 5:25 PM

    What about using the built in listToArray and ValueList functions? myArray = ListToArray( valueList(myQuery.columnName) ) If there is any chance your values could contain a comma, then use a different delimiter: myArray = ListToArray( valueList(myQuery.columnName,Chr(31) ),Chr(31) )... read more »

  • Overriding Built-In ColdFusion Methods With Custom ColdFusion Component Methods

    Posted on Oct 1, 2009 at 9:15 AM

    True, but that would require me to go through and change all my code. And the framework's core code. But if you could override it, you could have each included file displayed with a border around it, with the file name displayed in it as well. Would be awesome for tracking down which display file... read more »

  • Overriding Built-In ColdFusion Methods With Custom ColdFusion Component Methods

    Posted on Sep 30, 2009 at 5:48 PM

    This is really neat, way to think out of the box Ben! I don't imagine there is any way to do this with ColdFusion tags? I would like to override the cfinclude tag to display the name of the file its including (would be great for tracking down display code within a framework).... read more »

  • Learning ColdFusion 9: The Virtual File System (RAM Disk)

    Posted on Jul 26, 2009 at 11:20 PM

    Ben/All: I have my local development server running all the time, but I'm seeing the files on my ram disk disappear after a while. Anyone else running into this? I have a page that just does a cfdirectory list of ram:// and dump it out. If I put a couple files on the ram disk and run this page, I ... read more »
