Additional Functionality

Since this is a CFT, it can also be rendered in List Views.

I'm seeing some sort of Event driven possibility here:  The header, footer, and each row can fire predefined js functions when generated, when hovered over, clicked, etc.
The developer/power user can then choose to implement the functions to allow functionality such as nested list views, in-line list editing, etc, etc.

Exciting possibilities!

Yup, you can indeed do lots in a list view by modifying the RenderPattern in the fldtypes XML - as a simple example, I have used that approach with a field based on this design to apply custom rendering of specific columns of data in a list view. I developed a way of ensuring that the JavaScript function call rendered in each and every row in the list view fired only once as a helper for this custom field.

As you say, exciting possibilities!
