For exclusive new features in CB Query Field 6.1.0 the substitution parsing for query column data has been significantly improved. Previously you had no means of accessing for example JSON data inside of a column. The substitution would simply just output the JSON string. Now you can actually access the JSON data directly. Lets use the below for example.

SELECT `options`
FROM `#__options_table`
WHERE `user` = 1234

With the above lets for example assume `options` would give us the below JSON result.

{"favorite_color":"Red","favorite_food":"BACON!"}

Now to access this you'd use the below column substitutions in your query display parameters.

[column_options_favorite_color]

[column_options_favorite_food]

It's that easy! It doesn't stop there. What if your JSON contains an array of data? You can substitution those in too! Simply add the array index to the substitution beginning with 0 and you can navigate through your data easily. Example as follows.

[column_options_0_favorite_color]

[column_options_0_favorite_food]
