This tag is failing to validate in Coldfusion 8.  It was running on 7, now isn't working in 8.  Any ideas?


<cfinput required="yes" message="Last Name is Required"  name="lastname" type="text"  value="#t.lastname#">

There is nothing wrong with the code.  It works fine with CF8.  

It is probably a problem with your mappings.  The validation scripts are located in /CFIDE .  If that mapping does not exist, CF will not be able to find the scripts that perform validation.  So the validation will not fire.


<cfset t.lastName = "something">
<cfform method="post">
	<cfinput required="yes" message="Last Name is Required"  name="lastname" type="text"  value="#t.lastname#">
	<cfinput type="submit" name="submitButton">
</cfform>

Understanding Web Applications

Without even knowing it, most of us are using web applications on a daily basis. Gmail and Yahoo email, Twitter, Facebook, and eBay are used by most of us daily—and they are web applications. We often confuse these web applications tools for websites.  So, what is the difference?

The mapping is created in the coldfusion 8 administrator.  I was able to go to the admin page from the main name.

NYGiantsFan:

Open your browser and try and view this file:  (Replace 'localhost' with your server name)

          http://localhost/CFIDE/scripts/cfform.js

If you get an HTTP 404 (file not found) error, the problem is you are missing the /CFIDE mapping.

> make sure that cfide mapping is created in CF administrator

     Which is exactly what I just said.

   Do you have a field named 'effectivedate' in your form?

Yes...

<cfinput required="yes" message="Effective Date (E-Date) is Required (mm/dd/yyyy format)"  name="effectivedate" type="text" id="effectivedate" size="7" maxlength="15" validate="date">

What about the cfform.js file.  Does it exist?   Also, you are using an html form, yes?

Yes, cfform.js exists in these locations:

c:\coldfusion8\wwwroot\cfide\scripts

and

c:\inetpub\wwwroot\cfide\scripts

Also, this is the form tag...

<cfform method="post" action="formp.cfm">

No, view it from a browser.   The physical file might exist, but you have to test the mapping. (ie what the browser sees).  That is what matters.

NYGiantsFan,

Why the "B" grade? The problem was exactly what I said: the CFIDE mapping was wrong.
