New Attribute and Object Variable in for CFMX7

Ever wanted to output the actual SQL from a dynamic query you are debugging? With CFMX 7 you can do it!

There is a new attribute in the tag called “result” which specifies a name for the structure in which cfquery returns the result variables.

Then you can reference #result_name.sql# to output the actual SQL statement to the page.
