I am wondering as how all these sites (like this Expert-Exchange, hotmail, etc etc) works which are able to show all kind of chars (KEEPING format) in your mail/postings. All these data are entered in the TextField (like this one, where a I am typing this content), which goes to some database (like Oracle in mycase). And then they are able to show the whole data back in some TextArea without any problem. I think if I start taking care of each special char for me (like new line, ', " etc) then there could be no end for my code. I believe there should be some mechanism by which whatever data you get from DB (Oracle) --> JSP Java String object --> HTML TextArea and Vice-Versa without loosing any data and preventing the "Unterminated string constant". I believe that some sort of encoding and decoding need to be done, but what those are? How all these sites do it. Textarae:------ NOTES :-     JavaScript:---- var notes=document.Form.notes.value; notes = notes.replace(/\n\r?/g, '
'); and saving it in db...as string.. and again retrivewing from db:------ notes = resultset.getString("notes"); notes = notes.replace("
","\n"); <--- is it corerect? and displaying in jsp:---- <% String notes =request.getAttribute("notes").toString(); out.println(notes); %> upto here ok....when i am edittng that notes in jsp as below:-- NOTES :   here also showing correct ,..but when i was click submit button..it was showing error as unterminated string constant error.. on svae function:--- var notes=document.getElementById("notes").value; notes = notes.replace(/\n\r?/g, '
'); plz tell me ..where i have to modify it? how to display text with \n,\r in jsp from textarea? -- View this message in context: http://old.nabble.com/how-to-display-text-with-%5Cn%2C%5Cr-in-jsp-from-textarea--tp27714404p27714404.html Sent from the Lucene - Java Users mailing list archive at Nabble.com. --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, e-mail: java-user-unsubscribe@lucene.apache.org For additional commands, e-mail: java-user-help@lucene.apache.org
