Problem Description:

ParagraphFormat() does not work on all numbers

Steps to Reproduce:

<cfset NumberString = 1>	

<!--- This works --->

<cfset mystring = "Hello World "><!--- Yes there is a space there --->

<cfset NumberString = mystring.len()>	
<!--- This crashes --->
<cfcatch><cfdump var="#cfcatch#"></cfcatch>

Actual Result:

Crash when using variable that was set by len()

Expected Result:

Nice paragraphformat of a number

Any Workarounds:

Not use member functions



Here are some more examples <cfset arData = [1,2,3,4]> #arData.max().paragraphFormat()# #arData.min().paragraphFormat()# #arData.max().xmlFormat()# #arData.min().xmlFormat()# #arData.max().canonicalize()# #arData.min().lcase()# #arData.sum().paragraphFormat()#

Works as designed. When using <cfset NumberString = mystr.len()>, it takes NumberString as integer. Hence, only numeric methods are availble for this. If paragraphFormat() or any string method is to be used, ToString() should be called first. <cfoutput>#NumberString.tostring().paragraphFormat()#</cfoutput>

Hi Adobe, Since this is fixed in Aether (numeric data type is preserved and has string member functions), can this please be changed from Closed/Withdrawn/AsDesigned to Closed/Fixed? @James, if you change `canonicalize()` to `canonicalize(true,true)`, all your examples work in Aether. Filed CF-4202935 to cover that incorrect `canonicalize()` exception. Thanks!, -Aaron
