CFListbox (and others)

Have you ever needed to display a multi-column select box that contain complex elements? Ever wanted to do it straight from a query? This will take in a query and show a multi-column listbox with column headers and all. You have the option to simply display raw data (based on columns you set up inside the main tag) or having some of the columns be displayed with certain HTML controls such as textboxes, links, checkboxes, or even drop-down boxes (that can have queries display the available elements). This tag does a lot in a very small package. Included with the listbox tags is a "validationComboBox" tag that is used to display drop-downs based on queries. This can be used as a stand-alone tag its self. Also included is the well-known cf_FormURL2Attributes tag which is required to read complex data structures passed in to the form from the cf_ListBox tag. I have adapted this cf_FormURL2Attributes slightly so that it accepts another optional parameters indicating whether it is on a secure server or not. If you already have this tag and don't want to use my version of it--that's fine, the other listbox tag should work fine with the old version. I've gotten this to work in IE6 and Firefox 1.5 (displays almost the same). Results will vary based on CSS parameters beyond the default parameters.

I do not plan to support this tag. If anyone finds any problems with it, feel free to let me know--I may or may not be able to assist.
