I have an HTTPservice returning xml, one of the xml elements
contains html "<A href='example.com'>test</a>", when i
am returning plain text the flex component i built can parse the
information just fine, when i add html tags to the returned data
then flex sees my xml as having more collections or something,
rather then getting the text value i can "Object object", thats
with just one <A></A> tag in there, i imagine it will
get worse the more tags i add...
A couple possibilities:
1. Manually encode the HTML using "entities", for example,
replacing "<" with "<", etc.
2. Use the "escape()" and unescape() functions to
encode/decode the html
2. Wrap the strings you do not want parsed in CDATA tags.
A related question:
What are you going to do with the html in Flex? You know that
Flex can't display it, right?
I am using the limited html support of flex2 to call
functions from embedded htmltext that is data driven from sql
server, the goal is to make an application in which i can add an
infinite number of "pages" from a backend editor type app, almost
done too :) thanks!
