You probably know that when you use flash forms in Coldfusion MX 7 you are not allowed to use the word "new" in any of the actionscript event handlers you choose to create. For example, you could not write "myvar = new Object();" in your actionscript. If you tried, you would get a message saying that it was an "illegal use of actionscript". What you may not know is that you cannot even use the "new" keyword as a string!
In this example from Tyler Clendenin on CF-Talk he is trying to rebuild an array drop-down based on selections in a different nearby drop down list. He's looping through the data and adding it to the drop down.
Believe it or not, this code throws the "illegal use of Actionscript" error - even though the word "new" is clearly not being used as a code keyword. It gets better. According to Ryan Guill, even if you try and use it in a label it will error out - as in the following.
