View Full Version : Strange eading characters on HTMLEDITOR submit

15 Jun 2009, 8:56 AM
My forms contains an HTMLeditor field. When I submit the form (standardSubmit) the field starts with the following three leading characters ​ which creates an issue. Is it an initialize issue? looks like a ptr address or "memory bookmark" ;-)

Any suggestions?

Thanks much

Yup, it was placed there to replace the  . It ended up invalidating the XML generated from the data stored in the database, which ultimately was generated by the HTML editor.

I just gave up and removed all of those characters before the form submits the save.

Seems that when you initialize using the value: property these characters are gone from the post. So I guess I am good for now. ;-) thanks for the reply.

so you use an empty string? as in value : '' ?

I tried, but that won't cut it. I put a small string like "type here".... I know rather ugly. There is probably a better way, such as setting the value to "" at run time, but at this time I am still evaluating the whole package, so I am not spending too much time. Thanks.
