Problem Description: After updating from CF11 to CF2018, CFDump does not send JS and CSS to browser when used in a Component (CFC). This results in no formatting of the tables for structs, arrays, nor objects and makes the info very hard to read. We like to CFDUMP the #arguments# scope, among other things, to be sure of what we're working with inside CFCs. Steps to Reproduce: Use a CFDUMP in a CFC script and view the results in a browser of a complex object such as a struct or array. Actual Result: A plain HTML4 style table with no formatting. A view of the source in the browser shows no CSS nor JS has been written for the table. Expected Result: A nice, colored and collapsible, table giving a good visual representation of the object. This continues to work as expected in CFM scripts. Just not when used in CFCs. Any Workarounds: Instead of writing CFDump directly to browser from the CFC, we end up emailing the CFDump to ourselves.
