Use Those VTM Files

Ever wondered what to do with those VTM files that come with many of the Custom Tags out there? VTM files are used by ColdFusion Studio (and HomeSite) to display Tag Editors – the dialogs that are displayed when you right click on a tag and select Edit. How do you use VTM files? Simply drop them under the ExtensionTagDefs directory under the ColdFusion Studio directory (usually C:Program FilesAllaireColdFusion Studio 4.5 or something similar). Studio will detect the presence of the VTM file, and will use it to display appropriate Tag Editors. (Applies to: ColdFusion Studio 4 (or later))
