    Posted 2 Sep 2015

    Well, you're welcome to your opinion, of course. However, I've been coding applications in CF for going on 17 years now and have mentored literally dozens of CF devs so, no, I've seen what you're doing more times than I can count and you're being lazy.

    Since you're a beginner I'll suggest that unless you're working directly on a production server (you shouldn't be) your best bet is to copy that code snippet, comment it out (hope you know how to do that in CF) paste it back in and mess with the copy until you figure it out. I'm not an unhelpful man, however, and am sympathetic to beginners so I'll give you this as an initial guide: CFINPUT attributes and examples.

    Free hint: I suspect your issue isn't the cfinput tag at all. There is other stuff in your code snippet that's not CF.

    Also, feel free to avail yourself of our resources thread. It is dated so if you run into a broken link, please comment on it and it'll be updated or removed.

    Give a few solutions a try. Good luck!

    Welcome to DIC, dejax0217.

    So, as a general rule, we're happy to help you with coding questions given that you:
    1./ explain your situation clearly and
    2./ explain what you've tried so far

    In this case, all you've done is post up some code and ask us to do your task for you. In all honesty, the question you ask is vague (do you mean the form control's label or do you mean the value that it passes?) but regardless of either, you can't possibly have even tried a solution before cutting and pasting the issue here because the solution would require perhaps 1 or 2 attempts by even a novice coder to get the correct answer...and it would appear you've done neither.

    Take a few minutes, tinker with what you have and see what your tinkering does. Seriously man, this is literally the simplest, easiest question I think I've fielded in this forum in like 3 years. You need to put at least an atom of effort into this before you ask someone else to do it for you.
  3. In Topic: A Junior Developer Interview

    Posted 7 Jul 2015

    Rather than spend your energy trying to game the test...how about you just acquire the necessary skills and, you know, write the test on your own merits?

    It WOULD mean being possessed of the qualifications to actually perform the job that the test is screening applicants for. Your nervousness in the face of that filter seems to suggest you may lack the requisite skill set. You wouldn't be trying to acquire a position for which you're not qualified, are you?
  4. In Topic: Career change from finance to programming

    Posted 3 Jun 2015

    So, my 2 cents: you have a degree, you're doing database management. To me that reads as "has a degree" and "has experience". If you do database management and you enjoy it, ask yourself and answer this question: how did you end up doing that without a degree in CS? What makes you think a comp sci degree is a necessity to being a programmer if it wasn't for being a database manager?

    If I were you, while the free education route is indeed a boon, to go where you're describing you don't need a specific degree. I'd suggest you look into getting certified as a DBA (database admin). There are industry recognized accreditations for all the major database products and having one of those, plus your degree plus practical experience means you could likely name your employer. Tallahassee would probably even foot the tab for it.

    Once doing DBA work (which, when compared to most programmers/devs, can be more lucrative) you will be interacting with programmers all day long (in the correct opportunity). You can ease into programming in a professional environment that encourages such. At the end of the day, a prospective employer would rather hire the effective but un-degreed prospect rather than the peacock degreed but zero experience prospect. Degrees really do nothing more than get your foot in the door (although they do help later sometimes when competitive promotions are in play).

    Vamsc443, go ahead and re-check the thread for my response. Also, please understand that everyone who is here helping devs on DIC does so in a volunteer fashion. We don't get paid to render assistance. We do it because we're nice folks trying to help others.
