ListMin() & ListMax() by webmigit
Posted: 6 Dec 04

Alright, you can find a few places to download UDFs for finding the least numeric value in a list or the greatest numeric value in a list. I may put my own versions here later on.

I read in an article by a well-known cf'er that if you want to get the minimum value of a list, you would need to loop over it.

That's not true. The following isn't pretty but its a lot faster than using a cfloop.

Finding the minimum value
ListFirst(ListSort(NumericList_Name, "numeric", "asc"))

Finding the maximum value
ListFirst(ListSort(NumericList_Name, "numeric", "desc"))
