[thelist] CF: Thanks for the technique

A couple of months ago, Josh suggested that instead of using

    <cfif IsDefined("Form.Submit")>
       ... do stuff

That I first define the parameter then search for it's value as such:

    <cfparam name="Form.Submit" default="">

    <cfif FindNoCase("Upload", Form.Submit, 1)>
       ... do stuff

While modifying a image uploading tag, and making a duplicate for 
similar functions (non-image files, different treatment), I've 
discovered what a blessing it was. I've now got two very similar 
files that can easily and quickly make a clear distinction as to 
which is being addressed.

Thanks Josh!

Our best destiny, as planetary cohabitants, is the development
of what has been called "species consciousness" - something over
and above nationalisms, blocs, religions, ethnicities.
