Does anyone know of a good script to detect the browser and OS (including versions) with CF? So far I have found BrowserDetect UDF (http://www.cflib.org/udf/browserDetect) which looks good, but I would also like to record the OS and Screen Resolution. Are these things better suited to JS? Brook

> Check out the cgi vars: http://livedocs.adobe.com/coldfusion/8/htmldocs/help.html?content=Expressions_8.html Well, actually, no, it won't all be there. Browsers don't for example, typically send the screen resolution to the server.

I haven't used it in years, but BrowserHawk is kept up to date and is a great solution for this work of thing.  If you want things like screen resolution, you're going to have to pick something that runs on the client side, not the server side.  No amount of looking at CGI variables is going to get you that information. -Cameron -- Cameron Childress -- p:   678.637.5072 im: cameroncf facebook <http://www.facebook.com/cameroncf>; | twitter<http://twitter.com/cameronc>; | google+ <https://profiles.google.com/u/0/117829379451708140985>; ...

I guess there is some benefit to using a 3rd party paid tool like browserHawk since they keep it up to date. I'll take another look at it...
