I'm working with the Twitter API and am testing for the session variable (which exists) of SESSION.userdetails.accesspoint.  However, the cfinvoke is not being executed upon this condition.  Since I had a similar test not work until I simplified the structKeyExists, is this the correct way to test for this session variable?

<cfif structKeyExists(SESSION, 'userdetails.accesspoint') AND SESSION.userdetails.accesspoint EQ "Twitter">

Yes - structKeyExists is the best way to check for the existence of a structure key.

This is probably what you want...

<cfif structKeyExists(SESSION.userDetails, "accessPoint") AND SESSION.userDetails.accessPoint EQ "Twitter">

Thanks.  That is exactly what I needed.  I had not worked with complex structures and was not sure if I was writing that correctly.  When I set it that way, it worked as expected.  Thanks.
