I have:

<cfinput <CFIF session.myTransactionMode eq "addPayment" AND session.myPaymentID neq "">disabled</CFIF>
tabindex="#myTab#" type="text" name="GiftDate" id="GiftDate" size="10" maxlength="10" onChange="formatDate(this);"
class=notetext2  onkeyup="PopulateDate(event);" accesskey="Z"
required="yes" message="Please enter Gift Date!"
value="<CFIF isDate(form.GiftDate)>#DateFormat(form.GiftDate,'m/d/yyyy')#<CFELSE>#form.GiftDate#</CFIF>">

This returns:

Invalid token 'C' found on line 143 at column 11.  
The CFML compiler was processing:

a cfinput tag beginning on line 143, column 2.
 
How do you fix this?

I think this should be this:

class="notetext2"

still getting:

a cfinput tag beginning on line 143, column 2.

<cfinput <CFIF session.myTransactionMode eq "addPayment" AND session.myPaymentID neq "">disabled</CFIF>
tabindex="#myTab#" type="text" name="GiftDate" id="GiftDate" size="10" maxlength="10" onChange="formatDate(this);"

I don't have a lot of insight on what may be causing it, but I would like to point out that this style of coding makes finding these types of errors very difficult. You may want to consider restructuring this statement more like this:

<CFIF session.myTransactionMode eq "addPayment" AND session.myPaymentID neq "">
     <CFSET Disabled ="disabled">
<CFELSE>
      <CFSET Disabled=""
</CFIF>


<CFIF IsDate(form.GiftDate)>
    <CFSET MyDate =DateFormat(form.GiftDate,'m/d/yyyy')>
</CFELSE>
        <CSET MyDate = form.GiftDate>
</CFIF>

<cfinput #Disabled# tabindex="#myTab#" type="text" name="GiftDate" id="GiftDate" size="10" maxlength="10" onChange="formatDate(this);"
class="notetext2"  onkeyup="PopulateDate(event);" accesskey="Z"
required="yes" message="Please enter Gift Date!" value="#MyDate#">

While this takes a little more code, it is much easier to see syntax errors and also to find out where an offending piece of code is.

not 100 % sure but i think the issues is you are trying to nest a cfif inside a cfinput...

afaik...you can do this kind of thing with a regular input tab but not within another cf tag as the parser sees

<cfinput <cfif

and throws an error because as far as it knows cfinput is unclosed

try this

<cfinput <CFIF session.myTransactionMode eq 'addPayment' AND session.myPaymentID neq ''>disabled</CFIF>
tabindex="#myTab#" type="text" name="GiftDate" id="GiftDate" size="10" maxlength="10" onChange="formatDate(this);"
class="notetext2"  onkeyup="PopulateDate(event);" accesskey="Z"
required="yes" message="Please enter Gift Date!"
value="<CFIF isDate(form.GiftDate)>#DateFormat(form.GiftDate,'m/d/yyyy')#<CFELSE>#form.GiftDate#</CFIF>">

JohnLucania,

You CAN NOT use a <CFIF within <CFINPUT

You can do this with standard <INPUT tags.

This will work

<cfset dis = "" />
<cfif session.myTransactionMode eq "addPayment" AND session.myPaymentID neq "">
    <cfset dis = "disabled" />
</cfif>

<cfif isDate(form.GiftDate)>
    <cfset dat = DateFormat(form.GiftDate,'m/d/yyyy') />
<cfelse>
    <cfset dat = form.GiftDate />
</cfif>

<cfinput #dis# tabindex="#myTab#" type="text" name="GiftDate" id="GiftDate" size="10" maxlength="10" onChange="formatDate(this);"
class=notetext2  onkeyup="PopulateDate(event);" accesskey="Z" required="yes" message="Please enter Gift Date!" value="#dat#" />
