Note: In ColdFusion, all simple values can be treated/validated as a string. A UDF string argument accepts a date. IsValid("string", now()) returns true. Etc, etc.

Issue: ArrayFindNoCase denies some strings

Repro 1:

ArrayFindAllNoCase/ArrayContainsNoCase/ArrayDelete accept any string, including date (good)
  writeOutput(arrayFind(myArray, now()))//0
  writeOutput(arrayLen(arrayFindAll(myArray, now())))//0
  writeOutput(arrayContains(myArray, now()))//NO
  writeOutput(arrayDelete(myArray, now()))//NO
  writeOutput(arrayLen(arrayFindAllNoCase(myArray, now())))//0
  writeOutput(arrayContainsNoCase(myArray, now()))//NO
  writeOutput(arrayDeleteNoCase(myArray, now()))//NO

Actual and Expected Result: 00NONO0NONO

Repro 2:
ArrayFindNoCase denies dates (bad)
  writeOutput(arrayFindNoCase(myArray, now()))//exception

Actual Result: exception "Valid datatype for element to search is String."

Expected Result: 0

Basically, in the following, arrayFindNoCase() must never throw an exception when a date is passed to the myString argument and thru isValid("string", ..):
  function f(required array myArray=[], required string myString) {
    if(isValid("string", myString)) {
      writeOutput(arrayFindNoCase(myArray, myString))



Hi Adobe, This issue is not limited to ArrayFindNoCase. Could you please update this to cover ArrayFindNoCase/ArrayFindAllNoCase/ArrayContainsNoCase/ArrayDeleteNoCase (both the BIF and member function for each)? They all should treat a date search the same. Thanks!, -Aaron
