Recursive Web Blocks

New

This idea was stumbled upon trying to generate a tree list from dynamic source (table/aggregate, JSON etc). Due to dynamic source, the depth of the list is unknown until run time, so hard-coded solution is not possible.

Logically this leads to using nested web blocks, taking the current object and listing its children, recursively so that each child then also displays its children. So on, so forth.

Despite the data source in this case always being finite (hence, recursivity will not form an infinite loop), it is still not possible to induce web block recursivity in this way.

Proposal: Allow Web Blocks to be recursive, detecting whether infinite looping will occur or not.
