View Full Version : TextArea Component with HTML problem

07-19-2007, 04:55 PM
Hey Everyone,

I've been looking at the forums and additional things to see if anyone knows if this is a problem that has been solved or if anyone knows how to do this. I am using a textArea component to retrieve data from a Database. I have data in there. I have set the textArea component HTML to true because I need to style it in different ways. The problem is some text is not showing up - these characters < > in particular and anything after that.

I know its because those tags are specific HTML tags so it thinks that I am trying to format something but I am not. :mad: Those < > are actual characters that are part of the text that is coming from the database that needs to go into that textArea component. Does anyone know how to embed certain tags in a TextArea component with HTML set to true?
