Am using coldfusion MX and am very new at it.  Am creating a web page and the user insists on a last date modified on the first page.  I have gone through every book imaginable to no avail.  Can some one please give me the step by step instructions.  


Thank you

This will give you last date modified  for the current page

<cfdirectory action="list" directory="#GetDirectoryFromPath(GetCurrentTemplatePath())#" name="myDir">
<cfset thisFile=#listlast(GetBaseTemplatePath(),'\')#>
<cfoutput>
<cfloop query="myDir">
      <cfif thisfile is name>
      #name#-#DATELASTMODIFIED#
      </cfif>
</cfloop>
</cfoutput>

so lets break it down

First we qury the directory to get a list of all the files in that directory
<cfdirectory action="list" directory="#GetDirectoryFromPath(GetCurrentTemplatePath())#" name="myDir">
second we get the name of the current file
<cfset thisFile=#listlast(GetBaseTemplatePath(),'\')#>


<cfoutput>
thrid we loop through the list of files to see if any of match the current page
<cfloop query="myDir">
     <cfif thisfile is name>
     #name#-#DATELASTMODIFIED#
     </cfif>
</cfloop>
</cfoutput>

That wil work but it is more overhead. Use the filter value in cfdirectory to get just that file name.

<cfdirectory action="list" directory="#GetDirectoryFromPath(GetCurrentTemplatePath())#" name="myDir" filter="#getfilefrompath(GetCurrentTemplatePath())#">
then just output
<cfoutput>#myDir.name#-#myDir.DATELASTMODIFIED#</cfoutput>

This should just return one result which will allow you to get past having to loop through the entire directory.
