Hello,
You can replace <br> tags from text fields with line break character before output value in TextArea. It can be done in Before Show event, here is PHP example:
  
$fldtextArea_name = str_replace("<br>", "\n", $fldtextArea_name);

Thank you,
The problem is I'm not using PHP, is there any way it can be done in JavaScript (or VBScript)

Thanks

This works

fldarticle_desc = replace(fldarticle_desc,chr(13),"<br>")

Hi,

I've tried

fldarticle_desc = replace(fldarticle_desc,chr(13),"<br>") like stated above, but I only get "<br>" showing up in my output.

If I look at the source, I get "<br>" appearing where a proper carriage return should occur.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!

You have to set the field type to HTML.

Hi Stefan,

Thanks... Where is this "field type" you are referring to?

In CodeCharges interface, in the Field Type, there isn't an "HTML" to select from, I've just got Textbox, URL, Hidden, Label, Lisbox, TextArea, Checkbox, RadioButton... obviously I'm looking in the wrong place.. would you mind explaining a little more?

Thanks again,
PF

Hello,
Please open TextArea Properties and make HTML flag selected.

I've looked and looked... I have no clue where you set this...

The only items listed when I click on TextArea Properties is

Name (Textbox)
Default Value (Textbox)
Data Type (Number, Date, Text, Memo)
Rows (Textbox)
Unique (checkbox)
Required (checkbox)

I am using CodeCharge 2.0.7... where are you setting this?

Thanks,
Pf

To convert back to visual line breaks inside a textarea after having converted them to <br>, use this:

fixedtext = replace(originaltext,"<br>","\n")

Hi,

I've been messing with this one forever it seems, and nothing I do works.

'Before Show Event
fldComments = replace(fldComments, "<br>", "\n"))
'End of Before Show Event

Just causes this in my field...
Here is one point.\nAnd another point.\n

It seems nomatter what I put in the "replace with" section, gets substituted in as ACTUAL text, rather than HTML code. (I've tried removing the quotes, I've tried searching for CHR(13) rather than <br>.

Am I losing my mind over this? Yes... :-/

Thanks,
Powerfinger :-)

same problem

I had the same problem. I was able to do a Substitute (or replaces using an escape sequence, so code would be

fldComments = replace(fldComments, "<br>, " ")

worth a try...

I have a textarea where input data is received. In order to show line breaks as they were typed, I do a replace of the <br> with the escape sequence in quotes.

Try this:

Replace(whatever,"<br>",chr(13)&chr(10))

It works when you replace with "\n" in double quotes, and doesn't work in single quotes. Donno why.

<textarea name="Address" rows="5" cols="35"><?php echo str_replace('<br>', "\n", $myrow["Address"]); ?></textarea>

In your SQL select, that's when getting the record from the database you could do this

replace(sql.field,char(10),'<br>')

thereby replacing on the fly. Nice for reporting purposes.

Hi,

Is there any option to replace the text contents with out deleting exisiting text value

Lets say textvalue is 55555. I wanna change that to 11111.

For this I found two methods,
1) Delete 55555 and enter 11111
2) Press Insert key and type 11111

with out choosing Insert key and deleting the content Is there any other way.

Regds, Madhan

Yeah...I just had the same problem. Apparently, <textarea> is set to ignore all HTML markup. I've seen where the whole "replace(textareadata, char(13), '<br>')" thing worked, but I don't remember exactly...

However, what you can do is this: append the <pre>...</pre> tags before and after the textarea data before you process it finally. For instance, if i'm saving data in a textarea field named "USERTEXT" to a database, my SQL statement would be something like:

"update myTable set usertext = <pre>" & request("USERTEXT") & "</pre>"...blah blah blah.

Of course, this is VBScript. If it was PHP or something you'd use the '.' to concatenate the SQL string

I found this topic is helpful to me, and my solution for original question in ASP is:
text=replace(text,chr(13),"<br>")
text=replace(text,chr(10),"")

I found this was the answer to the Javascript problem:-

Essentially passing the /g flag to replace();

If you're typing it in ASP, make sure to use this
= replace(Request("VariableName"), VbCrLf, "<br />")
This replaces the HTML breakline with the ASP breakline. Sovled my (similar) problem!
