CF_Search_NextPrevious Custom Tag Update (v1.10)

New version 1.10 (CF_Search_NextPrevious)

I have made a revision to the ColdFusion custom tag CF_Search_NextPrevious. In most cases anyone using v1.03 or newer can just overwrite their old version with this one. However I do suggest looking at the "Upgrade" documentation (a couple minor changes may effect a few people. More details are provided in the documentation).

The most notable new feature is the ability to use a single url variable instead of two (example: index.cfm?pg=7 instead of index.cfm?strt=71&maxr=10).

Thanks again to all the beta testers that helped make this revision possible.

Julie's Gravatar This works great until I try to pass a variable that has a % sign in it. Example

and the value in #case_no# is 06%5

On the link for the next records it looks like it is going to work

but Cold Fusion insists that case_no isn't defined and
it doesn't show up in the URL Parameters.
Am I missing something?

Julie's Gravatar Nevermind - I figured it out had to add
URLEncodedFormat in front of the variable.
seems to have made ColdFusion happy.

Jeff Coughlin's Gravatar That's exactly what I was going to suggest :). I'm glad you got it working.

Brett's Gravatar Is there any type of modification when using this in a cfloop tag? Being that the tag attributes are a bit different. i.e. cfloop tag uses endrow instead of maxrows. Thanks for the tag.

Jeff Coughlin's Gravatar Yes. Actually I use cfloop all the time myself. I just tried to make the examples as simple as possible for people who might be new to CF.

cfloop query="qData" startrow="#startrow#" endrow="#endrow#"

where #startrow# could be #url.strt# or whatever you're using (same with endrow... might be
