  • Determine How Long Your ColdFusion Page Has Been Running Using GetPageContext()

    Posted on Sep 22, 2011 at 6:46 PM

    I'm sure this has been considered but why not just write the now() to a session then a flush and another one at the end of the page and then do a date/time compare? Then you can even do an isdefined to see the original load time of the page even if someone reloads. What I'm trying to do is write wh... read more »

I've tried probably a dozen different scanners and I like AVG best, plus it's free, or at least they have a free version. And btw, i'm still using Homesite 5 after all these years.

    It's been a while since this discussion was updated. I'm just curious what you're using now? I love HS but feel like I should switch just because its so old. I've tried Eclipse and hate it (mostly due to the FTP issues) and just tried the beta for CF Builder/Bolt but that expired so waiting for the ... read more »
