Hi,

When XDP templates are rendered as HTML5 forms and if the user enters "&" character into any of the fields, that particular field's content become blank upon submit.

Did anyone come across this issue? Do I need to encode the characters before submit?

Please advise.

Thanks,

Nith

Hi there,

there is big chances that you are right, maybe you will need to use a function to make sure each fields contains valid data for XML / HTML

Try replacing & for & and if this work for ya, use the following function to prepare strings for XML / HTML data

Hope this will help ya!
