Want to view a summary of your ColdFusion Components

If you need a quick overview of one of your ColdFusion components for documentation purposes for example, here is how you do it.

Go to your browser of choice and type in the URL you use to get to your CF Administrator.

For example, I access my CF Administrator with: http://127.0.0.1:8302/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm

Next delete everything after the CFIDE/ and copy and paste:

componentutils/cfcexplorer.cfc?NAME=CFIDE.adminapi.datasource&
METHOD=getcfcinhtml

This will show you all the details about the datasource.cfc that is used in the coldfusion administrator.

you can replace the 'CFIDE.adminapi.datasource' with any cfc you want to view.
just replace that string with the component_name of your choice.
