On html input forms using <cfform..> and validate="integer" or validate="float" I find that inputting a comma into the field isn't trapped so an error is thrown when the form is submitted and the input value passed to an sql update statement

I have several <cfform..> templates, they all behave the same

I see no workarounds for this other than creating my own validation code.

This same code runs without error under CF MX7. I first encountered this bug with validate="date" and resolved it by using the mask feature. This seems an obvious and easily-corrected bug.

I copied the javascript code from my old version of CF (studio 4) into a web page on my Win 7 Pro 64 bit machine and was able to use it for number checking. What this says to me is that it's not something wrong with the javascript interpreter in Firefox, but something with the javascript .js file accessed by CF 11 when generating an input form that utilizes <cfform..> and validate="float".

I've attached the two .cfm files that illustrate how the old validation javascript performs numeric validation without a problem. I modified the code slightly to fit it into a simple form, and used <form..> rather than <cfform..> to avoid CF imbedding its own validation code.

Low priority?! My users are not happy! Fix this! I've tested the individual cf functions in the cfform.js file separately. They work. However something goes wrong when cfform.js is called as a js source. Entering a comma rather than a decimal point is a relatively common error, not some out in the boondocks crazy event! Low priority my ...! Oh, the date validation has the same error!

DJ, can you check this ? I am not sure what path to put in build.xml for cfform-src.js file which also needs to be compressed

5899 | August 10, 2016 12:58:33 AM GMT someone finally going to look at this and at the two templates I attached 11 months ago? I hope so.

I've attached 3 .cfm files, MyJS.cfm, JSdebug4.cfm, and a new version of JSsubmit.cfm to better illustrate the problem. Please run them, opening with JSdebug4.cfm, to see what I'm getting at. Thanks
