Mura "event" Scope - Mura Docs v7.0

Mura "event" Scope

When working with events, keep CFML's scopes in mind. As noted in the Mura Scope section, in addition to the CFML scopes, Mura has its own scope called the Mura Scope.

The Mura Scope has a special subscope called the "event" scope, and it is created on every request. It can be referenced via m.event(). If you need to access the global event scope from within a contextual event, you may use m.getGlobalEvent().

Mura's event scope wraps CFML's request, form, and URL scopes. Mura also injects additional data and helper methods into the event scope, and the availability of the data is dependent upon the context in which you may be accessing it. As covered in the Mura Objects section, you may also store your own data in Mura's event scope for use within your own application logic.


You can use the following examples to "get" and/or "set" various attributes of Mura's event scope. Use whichever syntax feels best to you.




m.event('attributeName', 'someValue')
m.event().set('attributeName', 'someValue')
m.event().setValue('attributeName', 'someValue')
