Watch Those Form Field Names

Home » Watch Those Form Field Names

Ever named a form field something like “order_date”? Don’t. ColdFusion looks for specific field name suffixes to tell it to perform validation, and _date is one of those. Others to avoid are _eurodate, _integer, _float, _range, and _time. If your database column is named this way you’ll unfortunately have to name the matching form field something slightly different.
