cffile - wrong file type error message - Coldfusion - Advanced Techniques

I'm limiting a file upload to either a .jpg or a .jpeg file. If someone tries to upload anything other than a file with one of those extensions you get an ugly CF error window. Is it possible to instead detect that the person is trying to upload something other than what is allowed, and show my own error message (or set the value of a variable so that I can reload the page and show a 'nice' error message. Thanks in advance, Rob...

    You could use
    <cftry>
    <cfcatch type="ANY">
    </cfcatch>
    </cftry>

    In addition to cftry/cfcatch, write a regular expression to file the extension so you can validate that it's only .jpg or .jpeg. Then you can handle this exception with your custom message.
