Hi Dattanand, Instead of an additional function(s), how about enhancing isValid()? Ex: isValid("datetimestring", ..) and isValid("datetimeobject", ..) Just a thought. Thanks!, -Aaron

+1 - Additional options for finer-grained validation are good, but I'd look into enhancing isValid() before considering new functions.

This is marked as Fixed in this release, but what was the fix? Did you enhance the isDate() function or follow Aaron's suggestion and modify the isValid() function?

Never mind. Looking at the release notes, it seems both fixes were implemented.

Hi Adobe, This ticket needs re-opened and fixed. Two Issues: 1) The request was for: isValid("datetimeobject", ..), not isValid("datetime_object", ..). For language consistency, underscores aren't used in new parameter/attribute names. Please read the full description of CF-4199894, including the ticket numbers mentioned in that ticket. 2) isValid("datetimeobject", now()) throws "Valid type arguments are: any, array, Boolean, date, numeric, query, string, struct, UUID, GUID, binary, integer, float, eurodate, time, creditcard, email, ssn, telephone, zipcode, url, regex, range , component, and variableName." That list doesn't include "datetimeobject", but should (it also doesn't include the erroneous "datetime_object"). Thanks!, -Aaron
