I have a requirement where I send data from external webservice to be displayed in a siebel form applet. The control which displays this data is a textarea but the problem is my data is with HTML tags in it like
<html xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" xmlns:w="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:word" xmlns:m="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2004/12/omml" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40"><head><META
I need siebel to not show these tags but to show normal data after encoding the tags. I selected HTML Display Mode as 'EncodeData' but it is not removing the HTML tags.
From what I have observed, TextArea do not allow HTML formatting. This is because they are dependant on the Siebel ActiveX component unlike the Textbox.
So in case you want to try to remove the HTML tags:
1. Try with a text box instead of a text area.
2. In the form applet map the control and try with HTML Display Mode as DontEncodeData if not successful.
3. Also set the HTML Type to Field.
