[ string->encodehtml ]

Method

The [string->encodehtml] method has two forms. The first form takes no parameters, and the second takes two boolean parameters.

Both forms accept a string and change any reserved, illegal, and extended ASCII characters to their hexadecimal equivalent HTML entities.

The first form of [string->encodehtml] has the boolean parameters both set to false by default.

In the second form, the first boolean encodes line endings if True. The second boolean encodes "smart" if True. "Smart" encoding means not to encode the following characters: " & ' < > (double quotation mark, ampersand, single quotation mark, less than or left angle bracket, and greater than or right angle bracket, respectively).

The [string->encodehtml] method supersedes the [Encode_Smart] tag and the -EncodeSmart keyword parameter from Lasso 8.x and earlier. For backward compatability, the [encode_smart(text::any)] method uses the second form of encodeHtml where the boolean parameters are set to false and true, respectively.

  • Syntax
