Using NativeScript and Vue.js to Turn Your Friends into Cats [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 6/11/19 3:00 PM | vuejs, nativescript, javascript, mobile
An incredibly long time ago, OK, way back in 2016, I wrote up an experiment concerning Ionic and the Contacts API wrapper (“Working with Ionic Native - Contact Fixer”). The idea was simple. Given that you have a large set of contacts on your device, what if there was a simple way to add pictures to those contacts without one? And if we’re going to add pictures to contacts, surely the best picture po

Regular expressions – practical examples to get you started [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 6/11/19 1:00 PM | Blog, ColdFusion, Modern CFML, 2018, blog, modern cfml
There are many posts already out there about Regular Expressions, but I’ve done a few blog posts which use regular expressions and thought it wouldn’t hurt to do yet another post on regular expressions for CF developers who haven’t yet tried them. Let’s start off with which functions we have available to use in CFML: – ReFind – ReFindNoCase – ReReplace – ReReplaceNoCase – ReMatch – ReMatchN

Installing Gregory's Blog on your own website. [+]
Gregory Alexander | 6/11/19 2:30 AM | Gregory's Blog
Requirements You will need to have a hosting provider that supports ColdFusion. I have tested the software on both ColdFusion 2016 and 2018 and the software should work on all recent ColdFusion servers. However, if you want to use captcha to prevent spam, you should be running on ColdFusion 2016. Peter Farrel used sun Java classes which are deprecated in ColdFusion 2018 and Java 7. I will rewrite Peter's logic in a future version. You will also need to have a database. It is recommended

Gregory's Blog default user name and password after fresh installation [+]
Gregory Alexander | 6/10/19 6:30 PM | Gregory's Blog
In order to log into the administrative section of the blog after installation, use 'admin' as the user name, and 'admin' as the password. Be sure to change the password after logging in for the first time. In this version, the administrative section is nearly identical to the original BlogCfc administration interface with a lot more settings included. I will likely change this in the next version.

An open source version of Kendo Core is incorporated in Gregory's Blog [+]
Gregory Alexander | 6/10/19 6:30 PM | Gregory's Blog
I have incorporated the open source version of Telerik's Kendo UI into Gregory's blog. The reasons for this are numerous. ColdFusion on the server side is great, but in my opinion, relying upon ColdFusion for the UI was a zero sum game- it's outdated, proprietary, and just plain buggy. Several years ago, I ditched using ColdFusion's UI, and moved on using Kendo with jQuery. I plan on continuing to release new versions of Gregory's Blog that support the open source version of Kendo UI Core. Howe

Using the Kendo pager anywhere within a page. [+]
Gregory Alexander | 6/10/19 6:30 PM | Kendo Pager
The kendoPager is a beautiful widget that typically allows the user to navigate through a Kendo grid. It has fast forward and forward buttons to go to the first item and the previous item, displays the current page, which you can click to select another page, and forward and fast forward buttons to select the next and the last grid page. It is an intuitive control that is adaptive and themable. Although there is no official documentation on this, we can also use this control in any page

ColdFusion error: "The current user is not authorized to invoke this method." [+]
Gregory Alexander | 6/10/19 6:30 PM | ColdFusion
I wanted to document this as this error is not often found using google, but if you receive a ColdFusion error "The current user is not authorized to invoke this method.", it could be due to using the roles attribute in a cfffunction tag that don't match the roles that you set using the cflogin tag upon successful login. I received this error when converting the original application.cfm tag in BlogCfc to use an application.cfc instead. During the conversion processes, I noticed that there was

When you may need to refreshwsdl for calls to web services [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 6/10/19 6:00 PM | Axis, Blog, Web service, ColdFusion
Have you ever found that calls to web services from CF suddenly fail? when nothing has changed on your end? (No change of your CF version, no change of CF admin settings, nor any change regarding SSL/TLS on the host–all of which can cause their own problems.) What may have happened is that the owner of the web service may have changed something about their definition of that web service (in terms of methods or properties or return types). And as such, you need to REFRESH CF&#8217

At this point in the second example Step Functions workflow, we’re waiting for our AWS Transcribe job to complete. AWS Transcribe works faster than real-time, but it’s not instantaneous. If you’re trying to transcribe a 90 minute podcast or 70 minute video, it’s going to ta

5 Great Conference Surviving Tips for Introverted Developers [+]
TeraTech | 6/7/19 8:00 AM | CF Camp, CFSummit, Conference, Cool Stuff, IntoTheBox Conference
I am still very excited when thinking about the conferences I went to in the first half of 2019. Conferences are a great way to learn more about your ColdFusion needs. Learn about it in general, meet and greet and much more. There are plenty of great opportunities to meet leaders in the Adobe ColdFusion world. To some people, this sounds like a wonderful experience. To others, this can be an introvert’s nightmare. Today, w

Here is a quick guide to all the different kinds of structs in ColdFusion <cfscript> // plain old struct a = {}; a.b = “Bunny”; a.c = “Canary”; a.d = “Doggy”; a.append({“a” : “Apple”}); a.append({“f” : “Frog”}); writedump(a); // ordered a = [:]; a.b = “Bunny”; a.c = “Canary”; a.d = “Dog

I submitted a discussion article last month that has been “pending” for a while now.  How do I know if I create an article on the community that will not be published, or gets rejected?  Who do I communicate with?
