Question about bufferOutput

Can someone explain bufferOutput? It seems to imply that if false, output
that would have been sent before an exception is thrown away. but im not
seeing that. My test was this:

x = 1; writeoutput("

Buffer?

"); writeoutput(y);

Hi Ray,

I never used this setting, but found these link:

(doc: http://docs.lucee.org/reference/tags/function.html)

I have to try this out.

Another addition, as far as i remember, originally cfsilent back in the Railo days never produced output until we found out that you (Ray) were using this side effect in BlogCFC :slight_smile:

Hey Ray,

This is for the tag CFSILENT and functions that have the attribute OUTPUT set to false. If there is an error our abort inside the function or the silent tag and the setting bufferoutput is set to true any generated output will bee visible. If set to false it will not generate any output at all. This is especially good for the memory consumption…

Yes that is correct. The documentation in the admin is i guess copied from the attribute bufferOutput of the tag cfsilent. Unfortunate…

It had no affect I anything else and you can override the setting with each cfsilent tag. Remember something like this:

will not output anything at all.

Hi Gert,

So setting this.bufferOutput=false in application.cfc overrides the
default true value for bufferOutput in these two tags and
. Is that right?

Does it have any effect on other code, e.g. output generated in script?

The description in the Lucee Administrator > Output section isn’t
terribly clear. It doesn’t say it’s just for cfsilent/cffunction.

“Buffer Tag Body Output: If true - the output written to the body of
the tag is buffered and is also outputted in case of an exception.
Otherwise the content to body is ignored and not displayed when a
failure occurs in the body of the tag.”

Cheers
Julian.

Sorry, forgot to mention that not only in case of an abort, but in case of an exception as well.
