Passing CFC components

Posted on 2011-03-07

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have  a component which I am calling and this has an argument called jetId which is not required.
The idea is that if I pass a jet Id the query excludes it.
The code then does <cfif isDefined("jetID")> Jet id is being found even when I don't pass the argument because there is a variable called jetid contained on the cfm page which is invoking the component.

Is there a way that allows an argument name to be the same as a variable?

<cfcomponent>
	<cffunction name="allJets" access="public" returntype="query">
		<cfargument name="jetId" type="numeric" required="no">
           
        <cfquery name="allJets" datasource="#application.dataDsn#">
        SELECT 
        jets.*,
        jetCat.catDesc,
        manufacturer.company 
        FROM Jets 
        INNER JOIN jetCat 
        ON jetCat.catID = jets.catID
        INNER JOIN Manufacturer 
        ON jets.manId = manufacturer.manId 
        WHERE status = 1 
        <cfif isDefined("jetID")>
        AND jetID <> #jetID#
        </cfif>
        ORDER BY jets.jetDesc
        </cfquery>
        

		<cfreturn allJets>
	</cffunction>
</cfcomponent>

variables.jetId is the variable

arguments.jetId is the argument

if you use the scopes it should work.
