Displaying encoded data (Decoding data for common HTML encoded characters)

Displaying encoded data (Decoding data for common HTML encoded characters)

  
I have a string which was submitted by an external system, which some encoded HTML characters.

Ex, A space is saved as %20 in the database.

How to decode these sequences while displaying on a page.
Hi Kumar,

Someone asked a similar thing some time ago in this post.
Currently there is no component on the forge that does it, that I'm aware.

I'll try to add that functionality to this component next week or so.
If you endup creating ax extension, don't forget to share it! :)

Cheers,

HTTPRequestHandler has a "DecodeHTML" function which does what you want, I believe.

Hi Justin,
That didn't seem to work. But I will look at it once more. 

Hi Ruben,
That post didn't have enough information. So, I cried this thread. 

Thanks for your replies. If I find a solution soon, I would definitely update this thread.
Hi Justin,

I tried this, but it doesn't seem to work.
