FlashMessages Bootstrap - CFWheels 2.0 Plugin

This plugin modifies the default HTML block generated by the builtin CFWheels #flashMessages()# function and modifies it to be compatible with the markup needed by Twitter Bootstrap Alert elements.

Installation via CommandBox

To install this plugin via CommandBox simply navigate to the root of your project and issue the following command in the CommandBox window.

$ box install cfwheels-flashmessages-bootstrap


This plugin handles three different cases of alerts:

  • If the flash key name is one of the sandard Twitter Bootstrap Alert types of info, success, warning, or danger, a Twitter Bootstrap compatible class of either alert-info, alert-success, alert-warning, or alert-danger will be used to create the markup block according to the flash key name.
  • In addition to the standard Twitter Bootstrap Alert types mentioned above, this plugin also will look for a Flash key of error and convert that to a Twitter Bootstrap class of alert-danger.
  • This plugin also has a catch all wildcard feature that will convert any other remainig Flash keys not handled by the cases above to the standard Twitter Bootstrap class of alert-info.

To use this plugin simply add the following code to your view or layout file.



This plugin modifies the default HTML block generated by the builtin CFWheels #flashMessages()# function and modifies it to be compatible with the markup needed by Twitter Bootstrap Alert elements.

In order for the newly modified markup block to be rendered properly you need to make sure that you have configured Twitter Bootstrap properly in your view or layout file. Here is an example of how to configure your layout.cfm file in order to render these alert properly.
