cfUniForm v4.1 - Minor Release Update to Uni-Form 1.4

Posted on June 27, 2010 at 6:21 PM in ColdFusion, Uni-Form Tag Library

I just released cfUniForm 4.1 on RIAForge. As far as cfUniForm is concerned, this is a minor release done for the specific purpose of updating cfUniForm with the latest release (1.4) of the Uni-Form markup and CSS spec. On the other hand, for those who have been seeking themed CSS with cfUniForm, you will be happy to know that this release is for that exact purpose.

What's New?

There is a new 'uniformThemeCSS' configuration key available on the 'pathConfig' attribute for the form tag. This defaults to the default Uni-Form theme, but you can change this in your application if so desired. Three themes now ship with cfUniForm (thanks to Dragan Babic):

  • Default
  • Blue
  • Dark

What has changed?

If you are using the default CSS with cfUniForm, then you have no changes to make in your applications. If, however, you are using an altered version of the CSS that ships with cfUniForm, there is a possibility that you will see some differences in your displays, as the markup has changed slightly in a couple of places. Please be sure to test the new version in your application before switching!

If you want to create a new theme, copy '/commonassets/css/uni-form.default.css' and use it to create your new theme file.

As always, be sure to check out the demos and download at RIAForge.

Great work Matt! Just updated one web site and played with the "out of the box" stylesheets.
Thanks for all your hard work. cfUniform ROX!

Matt, thanks for this great release. I have cfuniform working inside of Mura. Thanks for all of your help. I have a quick question. Do you have some sample code for validating captcha?

On 7/2/10 at 11:32 PM, Matt Quackenbush said:

@ George - I do not, sorry. I actually have not used CAPTCHA other than in the demo forms. Crazy, I know. The CAPTCHA stuff in cfUniForm was actually contributed to the library by Matt Graf over at

@Matt, thank you so much. I will give him a shout.

Hey Matt,

Am trying to integrate cfuniform into another edit customtag for a clients website and it keeps on complaining that the </uform:fieldset> could not be found, or that the </cfif> needs to be nested within the closing </uform:form> tag. I've tried including both the header and the footer tags of cfuniform with no success. Is there any way to do this? Updating every form throughout the app would take days and it would be nice to just be able to upgrade all forms at once by updating the customtags etc.

Any ideas would be highly appreciated :)

Alex- I'd have to see some code to be able to answer your question. I'm not understanding the task. Use the contact page to send me an email. :-)

Hi Matt, happy Thanksgiving to you. I would like to be able to add this plugin to cfuniform any ideas on the the best way to do this?
Thanks for your help as always.

Is there a way to have another submit button on cfuniform. together with primary submit and cancel buttons

On 1/4/11 at 4:20 PM, Matt Quackenbush said:

@ Erik - Yes. Take a look at the comments at the top of /tags/forms/cfUniForm/form.cfm for more details, but you will want to use the submit2name, submit2value, and submit2placement attributes.

thank you. I got it

How can I validate captcha field in cfuniform. Is there build in option of validating this field

On 7/19/11 at 6:42 PM, Matt Quackenbush said:

@ Erik - Unless there is something built into the captcha custom tag (I don't think there is, but I did not write it so I'm not sure), there is nothing for validating anything built into cfUniForm. That said, cfUniForm *does* integrate seamlessly with ValidateThis.

I've actually never used the CAPTCHA myself, though, so I'm not even sure what's involved in validating it. If you need a quick answer/solution, I would recommend taking a peek at the custom tag for captcha to see if/what it provides/requires.

I was able to get it to work in ColdBox by using the flash memory. No easy way though.

I am trying to do the testing on my platform. The cfuniform validation works in all the browsers except for IE8, nothing is being triggered. What that can be ?

On 10/31/12 at 6:38 PM, Matt Quackenbush said:

@ Erik - cfUniForm integrates with the jQuery validation plugin. I would recommend finding whatever support channel there is for the plugin and contacting them. That said, I have never seen nor heard of any issues with the jQuery validation plugin and any browser, including IE8.
