<!--- After checking whether the form has been submitted, this code creates an
array and assigns the form fields to the first two elements. ----->
<cfif IsDefined("FORM.submit")>
<cfset myNumberArray = ArrayNew(1)>
<cfset myNumberArray[1] = FORM.number1>
<cfset myNumberArray[2] = FORM.number2>
<cfif Form.Submit is "Minimum Value">
<!--- Use ArrayMin to find the smallest number in the array. --->
<p>The smallest number that you entered is
<cfoutput>#ArrayMin(myNumberArray)#.</cfoutput>
</cfif>
</cfif>
<!---- The following form provides two numeric fields that are compared when the form is
submitted. ----->
<form action = "arraymin.cfm">
<input type = "hidden" name = "number1_Float">
<input type = "hidden" name = "number2_Float">
