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.)

Forms That Don't Suck - Preso & Code (Finally)

Posted on July 4, 2011 at 8:42 PM in ColdFusion, Uni-Form Tag Library

Wow. I, ummm, don't even know what to say. I cannot believe it is July already. The last few months have been a massive whirlwind of activity around the Quack household: remodel, band booster stuff, conferences, presentations, graduation, new job... the list seems to never end. Unfortunately, I have been so busy and have totally last track of time, and never remembered to force myself to sit down and get my presentation and demo code ready to distribute. Oh well, better late than never, I suppose.

Integrating Mura CMS and Hoth Exception Tracker for ColdFusion

Posted on June 7, 2011 at 11:56 AM in ColdFusion

A few months back Aaron Greenlee released his Hoth project, which is an exception tracking/reporting application for CFML. I've been wanting to find time (let me know if you've ever found time) to take a look at it, but haven't had a chance. Until now, that is.

XStandard + jQuery

Posted on March 29, 2011 at 2:37 PM in General, 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.

I am Attending OpenCF Summit

Posted on February 9, 2011 at 10:18 PM in General, ColdFusion

Living here in West Texas is kind of remarkable in a lot of ways. The savage beauty of the desert plains is remarkable. But nothing is more remarkable than the fact that out here you are 6 hours from anywhere, yet 3 hours from absolutely nowhere.

Albuquerque - 6 hours
El Paso - 6 hours
San Antonio - 6 hours
Austin - 6 hours
Dallas/Ft. Worth - 6 hours
Oklahoma City - 6 hours

But drive 3 hours in any direction, and you're still in the middle of absolutely nowhere.

if ( obj.returnVoid() ) { throw("NullPointerException"); }

Posted on January 31, 2011 at 4:29 AM in ColdFusion

Okay, so this is relatively elementary, but since I did it _again_ I decided to go ahead and write a short post about it. Hopefully writing it out in paragraphs instead of simply fixing the screwup will help me actually remember it and think of this first the next time.

Humbled and Honored: Speaking at cf.Objective() 2011

Posted on January 21, 2011 at 5:47 PM in ColdFusion

Hot off the presses (I think it's still hot after a couple of hours?) is the schedule for cf.Objective() 2011. Over its history, cf.Objective() has proven itself as the leader in quality speakers and content. This year's schedule is just over the top. Unbelievable.

I am deeply humbled and honored to be among such a distinguished group of speakers. While I am no stranger to public speaking, this will mark my first presentations at a programming-related conference. I hope to not drag down the reputation of the other speakers. At least not too much. :-)

Getting Google Apps Calendar Events to Show Publicly

Posted on July 6, 2010 at 12:20 AM in General

I have been struggling to get a Google Apps calendar to show the event details publicly. All I could ever get it to do was show up as "Busy". Thankfully I just found this post that gave me the secret ingredient that I was missing. Since it was such a huge help for me, I decided I would pass it along.

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.
