[. . . ] This tag selects the matching alternative from the cfcase and cfdefaultcase tags, jumps to the matching tag, and executes the code between the cfcase start and end tags. The cfswitch tag provides better performance than a series of cfif/cfelseif tags, and the code is easier to read.
Example <!--- This example shows the use of cfswitch and cfcase to exercise a case statement in CFML. ---> <cfquery name = "GetEmployees" dataSource = "cfdocexamples"> SELECT Emp_ID, FirstName, LastName, EMail, Phone, Department FROM Employees </cfquery> <h3>cfswitch Example</h3> <!--- By outputting the query and using cfswitch, we classify the output without using a cfloop construct. ---> <p>Each time the case is fulfilled, the specific information is printed; if the case is not fulfilled, the default case is output </p> <cfoutput query="GetEmployees"> <cfswitch expression="#Trim(Department)#"> <cfcase value="Sales"> #FirstName# #LastName# is in <b>sales</b><br><br> </cfcase> <cfcase value="Accounting"> #FirstName# #LastName# is in <b>accounting</b><br><br> </cfcase> <cfcase value="Administration"> #FirstName# #LastName# is in <b>administration</b><br><br> </cfcase> <cfdefaultcase> #FirstName# #LastName# is not in Sales, Accounting, or Administration. <br><br> </cfdefaultcase> </cfswitch> </cfoutput>
Chapter 2: ColdFusion Tags
Builds a table in a ColdFusion page. This tag renders data as preformatted text, or, with the HTMLTable attribute, in an HTML table. If you don't want to write HTML table tag code, or if your data can be presented as preformatted text, use this tag. Preformatted text (defined in HTML with the <pre> and </pre> tags) displays text in a fixedwidth font. It displays white space and line breaks exactly as they are written within the pre tags. To define table column and row characteristics, use the cfcol tag within this tag.
Data output tags

Attributes Attribute query maxRows colSpacing headerLines HTMLTable Req/Opt Default Description Required Optional Optional Optional Optional 2 2 Name of cfquery from which to draw data. Number of lines to use for table header (the default leaves one line between header and first row of table). If you use this attribute (regardless of its value), ColdFusion renders data in an HTML table. If you use this attribute (regardless of its value), ColdFusion displays a border around the table. Use this only if you use the HTMLTable attribute.
Req/Opt Default Description Optional Displays column heads. If you use this attribute, you must also use the cfcol tag header attribute to define them. If you use this attribute (regardless of its value), ColdFusion displays column heads. 1 The query result row to put in the first table row.
This tag aligns table data, sets column widths, and defines column heads. To display the cfcol header text, you must specify the cfcol header and the cftable colHeader attribute. If you specify either attribute without the other, the header does not display and no error is thrown.
Example <!--- This example shows the use of cfcol and cftable to align information returned from a query. ---> <!--- This query selects employee information from cfdocexamples datasource. ---> <cfquery name = "GetEmployees" dataSource = "cfdocexamples"> SELECT Emp_ID, FirstName, LastName, EMail, Phone, Department FROM Employees </cfquery> <html> <body> <h3>cftable Example</h3> <!--- Note use of HTMLTable attribute to display cftable as an HTML table, rather than as PRE formatted information. ---> <cftable query = "GetEmployees" startRow = "1" colSpacing = "3" HTMLTable> <!--- Each cfcol tag sets width of a column in table, and specifies header information and text/CFML with which to fill cell.
