QuackFuzed.com is the personal ColdFusion coding blog of Matt Quackenbush. It exists primarily as a place for the author to learn, and hopefully to assist others in learning and/or avoiding some of the same pitfalls and mistakes. (Quack certainly makes enough mistakes daily to make up for the entire ColdFusion community.)

I Am a Complete Moron

Posted on June 17, 2009 at 7:33 PM in ColdBox, ColdFusion

Using Multi-Word-Actions in ColdBox 2.6

Posted on November 11, 2008 at 5:06 PM in ColdBox, ColdFusion

The other day Jason Durham posed a question to me:

How can I go about using multi-word actions, using hyphens as separators, in my ColdBox handlers?

Transfer: Incrementing IDs and an Oooops

Posted on July 21, 2008 at 6:53 PM in ColdBox, ColdFusion, Transfer

Transfer allows you the option of having the database handle your IDs for new records (e.g. 'identity' in MSSQL or 'auto_increment' in MySQL), which is the default behavior for Transfer, or you can have Transfer generate your new IDs for you by utilizing the 'generate' attribute on your ID tag in your transfer.xml config file, and setting it to 'true'.

ColdBox: Using 'Persist'

Back in the ColdBox 2.5.1 release, a new feature was added: persist. Think of it as a sort of "flash memory", allowing your application to "remember" event variables when moving the user to the next event.
