How to handle special characters in XML data

Hi,

Can you please show me how to handle special characters in XML data?

I want to be able to receive and display the user < > ' " and all the rest.

Do you have a encode/decode URI Component?

Thanks.

You should be able to use the Javascript encode functions. Check out encodeURI

I use XML as the input for the grid and the grid itself doesn't do decode.

Is there a better way then just parse the XML and run decode for each cell?

That is a good point. I have noticed that behaviour as well. Certain cells can go haywire if the text contains as you said '<' or '>'

AW.Formats.String does encode html control chars while AW.Format.HTML pass them through as is. You should have something like -

var string = new AW.Formats.String;
...
var obj = new AW.UI.Grid;
obj.setCellFormat(string);
...

/aw.ui.grid/cell-format.html
