Making automatic Good morning, Good afternoon usingcfif, cfelseif, cfelse and cfset - Coldfusion - Getting Started

Does anyone know how to make a <cfif> and so forth tags where lets say when someone clicks on a page it says Good afternoon depending on the time or Good monring or even Good evening. I know it deals with cfif and cfelseif and cfelse but I really do not know how to place the logic which I assume you will be using cfset tag. Does anyone know how to do this? Thank you, AdonaiEchad...

    This script will work however writing it in CF means that you will be
    returning the server time and not the persons local time.
    <cfset Testhour = DatePart("h",now())>
    <cfif Testhour lt 12>
    <cfset Greeting = "Good Morning">
    <cfelseIF Testhour lt 18>
    <cfset Greeting = "Good Afternoon">
    <cfelse>
    <cfset Greeting = "Good Evening">
    </cfif>
    </cfif>

    <cfoutput>#Greeting#</cfoutput>

    To return that value of the localtime you need to use javascript. There is
    an example here [url]http://javascript.internet.com/calendars/daily-greeting.html[/url]
