  • Typing High Ascii Values On A Standard Keyboard

    Posted on Jun 8, 2010 at 3:34 AM

    Yea, these keycodes are very useful. My favs are 3-6 ;) @MSDN they have a nice point on this: Alt+Numpad: A method of entering characters by typing in the character's decimal code with the Numeric Pad keys (Num Lock turned on). In Windows: Alt+<xxx>, where xxx is the decimal value of a code... read more »

  • JRUN Throwing 404 Errors For PATH_INFO In Multiserver ColdFusion Installation

    Posted on Jun 7, 2010 at 8:31 AM

    Okay, THAT comes a bit late Ben ;) About 4 months ago I also tried to get a multiserver running on my home system and as you might guess AFAIK I had the same problem. After some testing I wasn't able to solve the problem so I reinstalled my single server. After reading this I think I'll give it a... read more »

  • Clearing The Session Scope Does Not End Your ColdFusion Session

    Posted on Feb 12, 2010 at 5:47 AM

    I didn't read all the comments (I may do this later) but I would like to comment this a bit. Where did you read that structClear() should be enought to clear a session? The interessting part is, that this looks like a function wich has to work like this. In older version of CF the structClear() fu... read more »

  • Putting Your Geolocation iPhone Photos On A Google Map Using ColdFusion And jQuery

    Posted on Feb 8, 2010 at 8:36 AM

    Very nice app, Ben. To the Update Topic, I dont think that there is a chance to update the Metadata of an image. I'm pretty sure Flickr uses a DB for storing the locations wich are manually set. I'll ask a friend of mine (some pro photographers) about this. I think it is like "hacking" trying to ... read more »

  • Thoroughly Document Your Use Of ColdFusion's CFHTMLHead Tag

    Posted on Dec 16, 2009 at 4:37 PM

    @Christian I would recommend doing this with jQuery. I actually don't know if there is a simple 'cf_htmlbody' tag, but with jQuery you can do this very quickly.... read more »

  • Factoring Out Key-Creation For Use With ColdFusion 9 Caching Methods

    Posted on Dec 16, 2009 at 3:24 PM

    I know what you mean with the senior executive ;) Not every software acts the same, so I just guessed how the threading would work. In my opinion the application server should create an instance for every request (a for user a, and b for user b) so there won't be any problems on the stack/heap sid... read more »

  • Factoring Out Key-Creation For Use With ColdFusion 9 Caching Methods

    Posted on Dec 16, 2009 at 2:05 PM

    Okay, everything's clear, thanks for the detailed information. Well, this doesn't sound like a big problem to me. I dont know much about CF/Java hacking, but this seams to be more a problem to DDOS than anything else. What I'm not sure about is, why a multi-threading server would mix up two threa... read more »

    @Raymond I think Dennis is right here. Once the array is created there wont be a possibility to change it while it loops. @Dennis Can you make an example when ++this.autoIncrementer creates two times the same ID?... read more »

  • Odd CFLoop Condition Runtime Compilation Bug

    Posted on Dec 14, 2009 at 3:56 PM

    Ah okay, I tried some things out and I got the same result on CF9. So it doesn't have anything with my problem I had. After experimenting some time I can't add anything to your discovered problem. This is strange and could be called a bug. I tried about 10 ways to set true as a variable (like <... read more »

    Okay, if I find some time this evening, I'll run this script on CF9.. just in case. And to satisfy my curiosity ;-)... read more »

  • Odd CFLoop Condition Runtime Compilation Bug

    Posted on Dec 12, 2009 at 7:31 AM

    This reminds me of a problem I encountered yesterday (and solved with your help). If you create an xml with cfxml, you cant create a cffile on MX7 (CF9 can), except you parse it toString. I know, not really the same, but this may be a bug that some variables are not parsed automatically. Did you d... read more »

  • Using Javascript's Function() Constructor To Deserialize JSON Data

    Posted on Dec 11, 2009 at 5:08 AM

    I feel bad about posting links from ASP.NET, but anyway this performance test is quite interesting. It's about the performance between eval(), a new function and the native support of common browsers. http://bit.ly/92Fl5... read more »
