I'm either an idiot, or a moron. But, I have courage and that's what matters. Let me explain:
Ever since I started messing with inheritance with CFCs in Coldfusion, I have lamented the
"fact" they didn't have a way to override a parent's method while retaining the functionality via
a call to
. I got so sick of it, in fact, I came up
with this brilliant way to re-use code and not repeat myself - I'd have component
with the arguments it had been passed.
Following me so far?
Then in component
, when I needed to slightly modify the behavior of
and still use its code, I could simply do so by calling
version of the method. Sweet!
Of course I had tried
, but I kept getting this strange error:
Error Occurred While Processing Request
Cannot invoke method method1 on an object of type coldfusion.runtime.Struct with named arguments.
Use ordered arguments instead.
What? I wasn't trying to invoke a method on a struct, was I? I thought this was just one of those random CF errors that get thrown which seem to have nothing to do with the problem, especially since it was right there in big bold letters. I never read the fine print.
Well, since then I had read that it did exist, and I tried again - but got the same error. I came to the conclusion that it became part of the language in version 7.0, since I don't yet have it. And lately I've been reading and writing with the Gurus on the CFCDev mailing list
, and I finally decided to ask: Am I a moron or is there no
in CF6.1? Well, as it turns out, I am a moron. I should have read the fine print.
