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.)

Integrating cfUniForm and ValidateThis

Posted on February 16, 2010 at 7:16 PM in ColdFusion, Uni-Form Tag Library

As noted in the cfUniForm documentation, Bob Silverberg's ValidateThis validation framework plays quite nicely with cfUniForm. However, there is one "gotcha" that I have been meaning to blog about for awhile now, but keep forgetting.

cfUniForm v3.5 Released

Posted on February 8, 2010 at 3:39 PM in ColdFusion, Uni-Form Tag Library

I have just released cfUniForm v3.5, which can be downloaded from the riaforge project page. This latest version includes a couple of minor bug fixes as well as a new 'enctype' attribute for your form tag, which allows you to create your own upload fields without relying on the built-in type="file" field.

Be sure to check out the new multiple uploads demo as well as the updated FAQs page.

A big "thank you!" goes to Byron Raines for providing the use case for the multiple uploads (one I had not thought of) as well as submitting a couple of patches for bugs (related to providing an ID for individual fields).

cfUniForm v3.4 Released

Posted on August 5, 2009 at 10:06 PM in ColdFusion, Uni-Form Tag Library

Wow. I have been so busy with things lately that I just realized that I forgot to release the latest version of cfUniForm. Well, that and I finally took a much needed vacation. :-)

This release contains a handful of minor bug fixes and a few new features, most of which are from new contributors to the library! So let's take a quick glance under the hood.

Posted on February 27, 2009 at 7:34 AM in Uni-Form Tag Library

One of the questions that I have been asked repeatedly is

"Why does the cancel button still submit the form?"

Well, as of today, you have the option of changing that behavior.

cfUniForm - Snippets For CFEclipse

Posted on February 22, 2009 at 9:10 PM in Uni-Form Tag Library

I have just added a snippets folder to the cfUniForm download zip file with some basic snippets to help you build your cfUniForm-powered forms even faster. To use them, simply copy the folder to your CFEclipse install and refresh your snippets in CFE.

cfUniForm - FAQs and Request for Live Examples

Posted on February 22, 2009 at 8:41 PM in Uni-Form Tag Library

cfUniForm FAQs

In most cases, the questions that I receive about cfUniForm are already answered by looking at the demo code in the cfUniForm demos section, but as cfUniForm has grown, there seem to be more and more questions coming in that are not explicitly answered in the demos. So, today I added an FAQ page. If you have questions about how to use the library, I recommend a 5-step process to finding the answer:

  1. Look at the demos and the demo code
  2. Read the FAQs
  3. Read the "use example" comments at the top of each file in the library
  4. Read my blog
  5. Send me your question via the contact page

Live Examples?

I have received a number of cfUniForm examples from different people that are quite cool. They could serve as excellent examples of not only cfUniForm, but of the various use cases that developers encounter in their day-to-day work and of the mad skillz and creativity used in providing a solution to the use case. Unfortunately, many of them are "behind closed doors" and/or still in development and not yet ready for public consumption. If you have public-facing examples of cfUniForm-powered forms that you would like to show off, submit the URLs and I'll add them to the list in the demos section.

Holy Cow! Two Updates in One Day!

Posted on February 20, 2009 at 11:20 PM in ColdFusion, Uni-Form Tag Library

It figures that a couple hours after I release cfUniForm v3.0 that jQuery would announce their 1.3.2 release. As a result, I have released cfUniForm v3.1, which now includes jQuery 1.3.2.

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

cfUniForm v3.0 - Complete Update Bringing Support for Latest Uni-Form and jQuery Releases

Posted on February 20, 2009 at 6:09 PM in ColdFusion, Uni-Form Tag Library

Thanks to the combination of the holidays and a huge workload, it has been a few months since the last significant update to cfUniForm. During this time there have been updates to the Uni-Form markup/CSS as well as to jQuery and several of the integrated plugins. I finally decided to sit down and take the time to update cfUniForm to include all of these various updates.

cfUniForm - Custom Validation Demo

Posted on November 19, 2008 at 9:01 PM in ColdFusion, Uni-Form Tag Library

A HUGE "Thank You!" to Michael Sammut for submitting demo code for using custom validations with cfUniForm. In his demo, Michael shows how easy it is to use some of the special rules options for jQuery's validation plugin with your cfUniForm-powered forms.
