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.)

jQuery next()/nextAll()/siblings() + dialog() Gotcha

Posted on June 16, 2012 at 10:31 PM in General, jQuery

So today I was writing up a simple little form hint with a jQuery UI dialog popup with more details on the hint. The code was actually quite simple:

Thank You, cfUniForm...

Posted on June 13, 2012 at 9:13 PM in ColdFusion, Uni-Form Tag Library, jQuery

This probably comes as no surprise, but it has been many years since I have written a form without the aid of cfUniForm. Today, however, I had a need to throw together a ridiculously quick and simple upload form on a project that only has this one form on it. Hardly enough to warrant adding cfUniForm into the mix. Or so it seemed.

cfUniForm v4.6.0 - IMPORTANT PrettyComments XSS Vulnerability Fix Release

Posted on September 11, 2011 at 5:38 PM in ColdFusion, Uni-Form Tag Library, jQuery

IMPORTANT: If you have textareas in any of your forms, you will want to upgrade!

A big THANK YOU! to Marc Esher for identifying an XSS vulnerability with the plugin that cfUniForm had previously used for "expandable" textareas. Marc contacted the author of the PrettyComments jQuery plugin repeatedly in an effort to help the author resolve this issue. However, the author gave no indication that he was interested in a fix. Because of this, cfUniForm now uses Elastic for expandable textareas.

XStandard + jQuery

We have used XStandard for many years now, and always used a JavaScript-free setup. When Firefox 4 came out, everything stopped working; the editor content was no longer being posted back to the server.

Firebug: "missing } after property list"

Posted on March 3, 2011 at 6:46 PM in General, jQuery

So I was doing some "quickie" JavaScript today, using jQuery, of course. I scribbled out some code. Then I decided to change the way I was going to handle it, so I commented out little bits and changed the code. I then decided to go back to my original idea, and uncommented everything that I had previously commented out. Or so I thought.

dynamicField: My First "Official" jQuery Plugin

Posted on January 12, 2010 at 1:48 PM in ColdFusion, jQuery

Anyone that knows me knows that I hate doing UI work. Why? Because I suck at it. Graphics, design, and layout are definitely not among my talents. Which is why I love jQuery so much. I can write a little bit of JavaScript - very little, in fact - add a plugin or two, and voila! I have a nice looking user interface for my application.

After using a few very handy form-related jQuery plugins and integrating them into my cfUniForm library, I decided it was time I go ahead and release a plugin of my own.
