Actually all java.lang.Object inerit a toString() method as you can read in the java docs.
Below is the actual info:
public String toString()
Returns a string representation of the object. In general, the toString method returns a string that "textually represents" this object. The result should be a concise but informative representation that is easy for a person to read. It is recommended that all subclasses override this method.
The toString method for class Object returns a string consisting of the name of the class of which the object is an instance, the at-sign character `@', and the unsigned hexadecimal representation of the hash code of the object. In other words, this method returns a string equal to the value of:
getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())
a string representation of the object.
As you can see, this method can be very useful. So how do I use it in Coldfusion? Very easily, jeje. look below:
//Create a structure
myStruct = structNew();
myStruct.today = now();
myStruct.name = "luis majano";
myStruct.url = "www.luismajano.com";
//Convert to string
And there you go ladies and gentleman!! Enjoy this quick tip!!
