    What is the easiest way to change the ouput of all dateField at once?

    Thytar

      I am a newbie, limited Coldfusion.

      I have a very large form with 33 dateField entries.

      I am working towards being more modular and trying to have only one place to edit items.

      I have a new patient form that post to a new patient PARSER page.

      (our server is now using Coldfusion 10)

      I edit in Dreamweaver CS6

       

      I was wanting to use something like this:

       

              <!--- this controls all date output --->

              <cfparam name="#form.*Date# = dateModOutput">

              <cfparam name="dateModOutput = DateFormat(form.*Date,"mmm/dd/yyyy")">

       

      The form.*Date would effect ALL DATEFIELD entries in the form

      such as...

      #CTScanDate#

      #MRIScanDate#

      #BoneScanDate#

      and so on...

       

      Any code that would effectively do this is fine.

      My boss said it can't be done... but I believe anything is possible and that this is probably very simple and easy.

      Thank you for any and all help!

      I am really starting to enjoy Coldfusion and its power!
