loop problem.

When this loop reaches its last iteration, the condition is is coming back as undefined , which causes the page to not load properly :
<cfloop CONDITION= "#questions[i].XmlAttributes["TYPE"]# EQ 2">
  <cfoutput>
    <OPTION VALUE="#questions[i].XmlAttributes["CAPTION"]#">#questions   [i].XmlAttributes["CAPTION"]#
  </cfoutput>
<cfset i = i + 1>
</cfloop>

So how do I get this loop to work as I need the condition to be what it is in order for the loop to work effectively.

the thing is ur logic is not proper.
because the i will keep on incrementing...

u will have to run a loop on the array length of question...

then inside the loop u will have to check wether
<cfoutput>
<cfloop from="1" to="arrayLen(question)" index="i">
<cfif questions[i].XmlAttributes["TYPE"] EQ 2>
<OPTION VALUE="#questions[i].XmlAttributes["CAPTION"]#">#questions   [i].XmlAttributes["CAPTION"]#
</cfif>
</cfloop>
</cfoutput>

let me know

change to="arrayLen(question)"
this to to="#arrayLen(question)#"

i hope this will work.. but the basic logic is to run a loop on he length of the questions..

hope u understand what i am trying to say

No I think what spunog is trying to do is to only run this loop when the question type is 2.

I am guessing that this is because questions of type 2 require selects as the form of answer.

I am thinking that it is possible that the double quotes are the problem since CF could be reading it as this :

CONDITION= "#questions[i].XmlAttributes["

Actually if I were you I would rewrite the code as one large loop over i and then use an if for this question like this :

<cfloop index="i" from="1" to="#ArrayLen(question)#">
<cfoutput>
<cfif questions[i].XmlAttributes["TYPE"] EQ 2>
<OPTION VALUE="#questions[i].XmlAttributes["CAPTION"]#">#questions   [i].XmlAttributes["CAPTION"]#
</cfif>
</cfoutput>
</cfloop>

But you could also try replacing the inner double quotes with single quotes and see if that works too.

Just use XPath to get only the elements you wish to use.  I am not a 100% sure on the structure of the XML doc you are using but you should be able to do something like the following:

<cfset aryCaptions = XmlSearch(questions, "*/questions[@type=""2""]")>
<SELECT>
<cfloop index="i" from="1" to="#ArrayLen(aryCaptions)#">
<cfoutput>
<OPTION VALUE="#aryCaptions[i].XmlAttributes["CAPTION"]#">#aryCaptions[i].XmlAttributes["CAPTION"]#</OPTION>
</cfoutput>
</cfloop>
</SELECT>

This will filter out any questions where the type attribute equals 2.  Again, depending on the structure of your XML doc, you may not need the */ at the beginning of the XPath query.
