ColdFusion Builder provides a new option for us to set default contents in our newly created CFM and CFC files. Like code snippets this features will be helpful to place some standard code that we normally used in the CFM files like comment code block or HTML code blocks.

We can use this feature by placing the contents at ColdFusion Editor Section. Open Preferences > ColdFusion > Editor Profiles > Editor

CFBuilder Tip:New CFM And CFC File Settings

Purpose      :





I have defined my default CFM file name and I placed the above code in "Initial CFM Content section" which we normally used in many CFM display pages and you can also set your frequently used contents in this section. This feature is applicable for CFC files as well. Do you think this feature is helpful? For me this is really a handy feature. ColdFusion Builder Rocks!

Superb Feature.
Akbar, I think for the FuseDocs we use in the cfm, cfc pages know, we can actually store all those contents using this, so that we need not retype again and again.
