As requested, I have posted a FlashPaper version of the “Undocumented ColdFusion MX 6.1” presentation that I have used in user group presentations. The URL is This presentation keeps evolving, each time I discover or am informed of something new of interest I try to include it (the update date is on the title page). If you have any additional tips, or find that any of the content is incorrect or no longer work, let me know.

  1. Here is one more to add. It was posted on CF Talk a while back. In a CFOutput between two # # you can do most anything that you can do on the right side of a CFSET. Try the code below.
    At first glance you would expect it to error but it does not. I have not really found a use for it other than possible doing math that only needs to be displayed and not stored saving the MS that it takes CF to write the answer to a variable.
    <cfset x=5>
    <cfset y=6>
    # gettickcount() / 100 + 5#
    x + y = #x + y#
