I am getting only the first record in the List

below is the Code I am using in the CFC, I am returning "thisLink" from the function.
also i need to put an href on the doi


<cfloop list="#arguments.record.Instrumentation#" index="thisTest" delimiters=";">
					
					<!---<cfset thisTestI = Trim(thisTest)>--->
					
					<cfsavecontent variable="thisLink">
					<cfoutput>
					<!---<span class="rdLinkItem"><a href="">#thisTestI#</a></span><br>--->
					#thisTest#<br>
					</cfoutput>
					<cfset result = result & trim(thisLink)>
				</cfsavecontent>
				
			</cfloop>

you're using "thisLink" inside your cfsavecontent before you're done creating it...


      <cfset result = result & trim(thisLink)>
   </cfsavecontent>

perhaps something like this... doesn't seem like you need the cfsavecontent just to create a variable that you then contact with another.  Just build the entire thing inside the cfsavecontent


   <cfoutput>
   <cfsavecontent variable="result">
    <cfloop list="#arguments.record.Instrumentation#" index="thisTest" delimiters=";">
       <span class="rdLinkItem"><a href="">#thisTestI#</a></span><br>
       #thisTest#<br>
     </cfloop>
   </cfsavecontent>
  </cfoutput>

@gdemaria

Thanks for the catch , I put the cfset out side the cfsavecontent and now it is giving me the last record only,

i modified the code something like this which works ,and gives an output

output
 but separating the doi and putting an href around the numerical in doi:10.1037/t01210-000 is getting tough

 
 <cfsavecontent variable="result">
        <cfoutput>
        <table >
            <cfloop list="#(arguments.record.instrumentation)#" index="i" delimiters=";">
                <tr>
                    <td>#i#</td>
					<td><cfset i = replaceNoCase(i, "doi*", "<span class=""correctedTerm"">hello</span>","all" ) >
					<cfif len(i)><a href=>#i#</a></cfif></td>		
					                    
                </tr>
            </cfloop>
        </table>
        </cfoutput>
    </cfsavecontent>

I'm not clear on what the output should be...  if no doi, then no link?

Maybe you can tweak this...

 <cfsavecontent variable="result">
        <cfoutput>
        <table >
            <cfloop list="#(arguments.record.instrumentation)#" index="aVal" delimiters=";">
                <tr>
                    <td>#aVal#</td>
					<td>
                    <cfif aVal contains "doi:">
                      <cfset theLink = listLast(aVal,":")>
                      <a href="#theLink#">#theLink#</a>
                    <cfelse>
                      &nbsp; <!--- no doi, so no link ---->
                    </cfif>
                   </td>					                    
                </tr>
            </cfloop>
        </table>
        </cfoutput>
    </cfsavecontent>

				<cfif aVal contains "doi:">
					<cfset var PartDoi= aVal>
						<cfset  thisLink = listLast(aVal,":")>
						<cfset doi="doi:<a href=""#getLink(thisLink, baseURL)#"" target=""_blank"">#thisLink#</a>">

looks good!   The only thing is that you can't declare "var" anywhere except the top of your function, so this line should thrown an error..

<cfset var PartDoi= aVal>

just remove the var from this line and declare the variable at the top of your function to empty:

<cfset var PartDoi= "">
