Can I evaluate a variable in the value attribute of <cfhttpparam>?

Example:

<cfhttpparam type="header" name="code" value="#URL.code#">

Will this actually evaluate the code from the URL parameter?

Yep. There are a few exceptions, but for the most part, any CFML variable within a CF tag (cfquery, cfhttpparam, etc...) will be automatically evaluated.

You can see it in action, by creating two test pages. Run test.cfm and you'll see the value of the header "code" is "Some Value Here"

test.cfm
<cfset url.code = "Some Value Here">
<cfhttp url="http://yourserver.com/action.cfm">
	<cfhttpparam type="header" name="code" value="#URL.code#">
</cfhttp>
<cfoutput>#cfhttp.fileContent#</cfoutput>

Open in new window

action.cfm
<!--- display request data including headers --->
<cfdump var="#GetHttpRequestData()#">

Open in new window
