You're really gotta fix this sort of thing. I dunno how you can think it's still OK to have it in the system too full releases later. -- Adam

This is not fixed in CF11 Update 5 (nor in build The following still throws "Error while parsing the validateparam" (unless the comma is removed from both validateparams): MyCFC.cfc --------- component accessors="true" { property name="myProperty1" validate="regex" validateparams="{pattern=[!@,]}"; property name="myProperty2" validate="regex" validateparams="{pattern=[!]{1,}}"; function init() { setMyProperty1("!"); setMyProperty2("!"); } } index.cfm --------- <cfscript> o = new MyCFC(); writeOutput(o.getMyProperty1()); writeOutput(o.getMyProperty2()); </cfscript> Can this ticket please be re-opened and fixed? Thanks!, -Aaron

Regarding my last comment, Adobe replied on #CF-4044095: ---------------------- If a pattern consists of a comma(,) then the pattern should be enclosed in quotes. Like for example in the above example, 1) validateparams="{pattern= '[!@,]' }" 2) validateparams="{pattern= '[!]{1,}' }" ---------------------- That was undocumented, but is documented now at Thanks!, -Aaron
