How to display multi-lines text correctly (view only mode)

Hi,
I have a description field that includes multi-lines format, where the lines are being separated by
characters: chr(10) and chr(13).
When I’m using messageStyleText (or rawText) – I’m getting all the data in one line.
Can you please recommend of an OAF item that will display the text correctly?
Should I use another character as the line separator?
Thanks in advance,
Rona

Hi Rona;
rawText item supports HTML tags. so you can use br tag.
Best Regards;

  • How do you display multi line text

    Hi
    How does one display multi line text? I would like to display address information on the screen so that the user can select it and copy/paste it into another application (ms word).
    I have the address information as separate columns (address1, address2, city, province, postal code) so I've changed the query on my view object to add it as address1 || chr(10) || address2 || chr(10) || city ....
    If I display it on the page as an output text, it all displays as one line (okay, the chr(10) thing did not work but that's beside the point).
    In general, is there a way to display multi line text? What component is suitable for this, if there is one?
    Thanks

    You can use normal outputText components in a panelGroupLayout (vertical layout) and add each attribute to it. The remove the labels or set the components to simple. You can then mark the data in the browser and use normal copy&paste to transfer the data.
    If you want to output longer text with line breaks you can use an outputText with escape=false and use the br html tag to generate a line break;
    <af:outputText escape="false"
    value="+++++++long<br>test<br> this is a long text in multiple lines" id="ot10" truncateAt="#{viewScope.ToggleBean.truncateLength}"/>Timo

  • Displaying Multi Line Text

    Hi,
    I am having issues in displaying multi line text on a Text Item. Basically there is data in the database column DetailText which is stored like this with carriage returns :
    If I look at the column in Toad it is formatted with all the carriage returns correctly eg.
    Hello
    World
    When I display this in my StaticStyled Item it displays like "Hello World" in one line. I want to be able to display it as it is with the carriage return on 2 seperate lines.
    I have looked in this forum and one search 2 places and one suggestion was to use RawText Item type. I have tried changing the Item Type to Raw Text and FormattedText but it doesn't make any difference. The lines are still displayed horizontally instead of vertically. Another place I saw was to use OAHTMLWebBean but doesn't show how I can do this.
    This should be simple enough but I have searched the DevGuide and this forum and couldn't figure out the solution. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Hi,
    I tried to do it in different way. What i did is I have created a item of type formattted text and set its text like:--
    <html>User authentication failed. <br*> Cause: Invalid password.</html> --remove *
    So I am able to see the prompt like :-
    User authentication failed.
    Cause: Invalid password.
    Hope this helps you...

  • New lines created in excel when displaying multi-line text item value

    Hi all,
    I put the value of a multi-line text-item into a csv file :
    DECLARE
    file_filter VARCHAR2(256) := 'Export Files (*.csv)/*.csv/All Files (*.*)/*.*/';
    fExp VARCHAR2(256);
    in_file Text_IO.File_Type;
    linebuf VARCHAR2(4000);
    BEGIN
    fExp := get_file_name ( directory_name, file_name, file_filter, NULL, SAVE_FILE, TRUE);
    IF fExp IS NOT NULL
    THEN
    set_application_property(cursor_style,'BUSY');
    in_file := Text_IO.Fopen( fExp, 'W');
    linebuf := NVL(:com_bnc_possibles.LIBEL_TRAITE,'') || ';' ||
    NVL(:com_bnc_possibles.NUM_ANFR_ID,'') || ';' ||
                             NVL(:com_bnc_possibles.ver_fiche,'') || ';' ||
                             NVL(:com_bnc_possibles.titre,'') || ';' ||
    NVL(to_char(:com_bnc_possibles.date_creat, 'dd/mm/yyyy'),'') || ';' ||

    NVL(:com_bnc_possibles.label_reg,'') || ';' ||
    NVL(:com_bnc_possibles.nom,'') || ';' ||

    Text_IO.Put_Line( in_file, linebuf);
    Text_IO.Fclose( in_file);
    set_application_property(cursor_style,'DEFAULT');
    END IF;
    END;
    And when I opened the csv file then the remaining lines , that is from the second line , of the column "motifs" are displayed through the column A of excel. The "motifs" multi-line text-item has 500 as its Maximum Length property value, and has a Char Data Type property value.
    So how to display all the motifs' lines through the same column M without displaying the remaining lines in column A ?
    Or are there tips to remove CHR(13) characters from a multi-line text-item ?
    Thank you very much indeed.

  • How to display multi-line event in Ical

    I read that you could display multiple lines of an event description in ical using Option-enter. This works...However, after I select "All Day" event, it reverts it back to single line display on my monthly view. I want to be able to print my ical Monthly View and I need the whole event description to display. Any suggestions?
    I'm using ical 4.0.2

    Hi,
    I don't think iCal does this.

  • How to display multple line text in a single cell in ALV?

    Hi all,
    I have 'Material Detailed Description' field in my ALV report, and it's taken from a multiple line text table. Is there any way so I can get this whole text to fit in a single ALV cell (not in single, but multiple line, as in original text data)?
    Thank you.

    Hi
    If you want you can display this long text field in ALV but the allignment of the ALV not looks good. so generally we won't display them in the output,
    instead, in the interactive list write the code to call that MM03 transaction, and the user can see that text in the transaction when ever double clicked on that MATERIAL field.

  • Display multi-line text

    I'm only using AWT. I need a component that's basically an uneditable Textarea (preferably no caret), where each line of text can be a different font and color. I was thinking to just extend a Canvas to draw the text on, and just add that component to a ScrollPane to get the scrollbar. Would this be the way to go? If not, can anyone suggest a better way?
    I'd also think this would be a FAQ, but I can't find anything on it. If someone knows of a component out there that already exists, please let me know where I can check it out.
    Thanks!
    -James

    You could make a TextArea which is disabled by calling setEnabled(false) (this is a component method). I think that that would be the easiest, however if color lines and changing fonts are what you are after you will need to go with something more elabrate. If you were using Swing you could just throw some HTML into the TextArea, but since you aren't I don't think there's an easy way using components.
    The other way to go is to draw directly onto a Panel or Canvas using the drawString method. The problem I see with this is that drawString will not respect \n (newlines) so you will need to write your own code to implement multiple lines. Also, if you go this way I would take a look at the FontMetrics class which can help you with the dimensions of each line.
    I hope this helps,

  • Can Captivate 5 support multi-line text boxes?

    A colleague is trying to add a text box, where the user will need to enter multiple lines...  We don't want word wrap, we actually want the user to be able to add carriage returns and additional lines...  Is that possible?
    If the text box element can't do multiple lines, is there a way to accomplish this using a different canned element? (non-klunky, I've read the 3-year-old thread on this topic.)
    Thanks in advance

  • Displaying a multi-line text block in an ALV grid cell

    Can I display a multi-line text block (i.e. a paragraph of text) in an ALV grid cell?
    If yes, what properties do I set in the Field Catalaog (I tried the style and that didnt seem to work)
    Thanks

    By default ALV Grid merges fields with same values vertically.
    Isn't that only when the column is part of the sort key? You also have to consider the user changing the sort sequence, which can make the text jumbled up. In one of my reports I have made the cell a hotspot and displayed the text in a popup. Of course you cannot print it.

    Pradeep,
    You cannot access Multiline text fields from Project Professional and in Project Server Views. These fields are for use in Project Details pages and with workflow for demand management in Project Server. Please refer to the article shared in earlier post.
