Custom tag to output a "Quick Scan List" of output table rows and allow you to expand and collapse (using Ajax) a detail page within the rows (the columns can also be sorted). Note this tag relies upon the blank.html file to be present inorder to get around the IE mixed-mode warnings for SSL sites.

The tag has the ability to redraw itself (i.e. re-run the query) based upon the value
of the javascript variable resetQSL in the global scope of the page using this tag. Your
detail pages can reference this variable as parent.resetQSL and can set it to 'false' or
'true' if a field present in the QSL was changed in the detail and thus needs to be reflected
in the QSL or as a result of the detail page the rows to show has changed.

A CFC can also be passed into the tag to provide custom value mappings for row values (e.g. change abbreviations from the DB to their real text value) and custom column values can also be created on the fly based upon the rest of the data in the row. The custom value can be anything you want even an image.
