Profile Information

What do you like about CFML
It's easy and quick to use, yet quite powerful.
What other technologies do you use?
HTML (obviously), CSS, JavaScript, and Flex (a little)
About Me:
I'm the sole ColdFusion developer in the Portal and Web Services unit at the University of Maryland, College Park. I develop CF-powered web applications for departments that don't have their own programming expertise, troubleshoot legacy CF applications, and develop CF-powered portlets for the relatively new university portal. I'm married with 4 greyhounds.

ColdFusion 8's image functions + jQuery= a UI for adding text and color blocks into an image file

Posted on February 28, 2008 at 13:05 3 Comments

I blogged about this on my external blog yesterday but thought I'd share it here as well.



One of the new features in ColdFusion 8 is the ability to manipulate images using ColdFusion tags and functions. In addition to being to do generic image manipulations (like rotating, resizing, and cropping), you can also add text to an image using the ImageDrawText function.



A week ago, an idea popped into my head: "What if you could create a UI tool that would let a user decide what… Continue

Switching Between Sets of Tables On The Fly

Posted on February 8, 2008 at 12:55 0 Comments

(This post is also on my external blog, but I wanted to share it here as well).



Ever need to tell your ColdFusion app to run select queries against a different set of tables while you do something to the original set

(like perform a batch update)?



I did. Here's how I did it.

First, I gave each table in each set a two-part name, two words…

ColdFusion Getting Some Respect from Dzone.com

Posted on January 23, 2008 at 13:24 0 Comments

The folks over at Dzone are going to launch several new websites containing news and information about various web technologies, including ColdFusion:

DZone's Network is growing

Dzone's a pretty cool site, so I think this can only be a good thing for ColdFusion.


Counting down to the conferences...

Posted on January 13, 2008 at 17:12 0 Comments

Just on a whim, I decided to add countdown timers to the cf.Objective() and CFUnited promotional badges on my external blog. I also wrote a blog post about the JavaScript code involved.



So let's see...right now it's just over 109 days until cf.Objective(), and 163 days until CFUnited. Can't wait!…

How to Use the Same Server-Side Code to Validate Form Data With or Without AJAX Using jQuery

Posted on January 3, 2008 at 0:14 0 Comments

Just finished a post on my external blog about a technique I developed recently that allows me to write a single set of ColdFusion code to validate data submitted via an HTML form that can then be executed via AJAX if the user's browser has JavaScript enabled or executed server-side via a regular form post if JavaScript has been… Continue

Brian, I totally agree. I put CFUnited as a group the minute I signed up. I have been begging for someone to do this for a long time. I think all attendees should create a profile. It is a great way to get connected. I see great things in the future for this site. I plan on inviting Nick Tong to CFUnited Europe.

I did also - somehow it keeps getting removed. I'll put it back and how long it stays up this time.
