  • 1.  New Line or Carriage Return in Lookup Browse window?

    I have a lookup that provides some additional descriptive information about the various choices in a separate column to the side of the main selections. I'd love to be able to force a new line in a couple of those descriptions. I can get the code to work nicely in a direct query using chr(10) or chr(13), but when viewed in the popup browse window, it seems to strip those characters out. Is there a method of getting that formatting all the way through to the end user?

    Thanks.

    Control chacters are dropped in portles when they are displayed. Have a look at

    That's rather disheartening. It hadn't occurred to me that this could also be a portlet issue. So, I didn't think to search for that. I suppose I can understand the 'why' behind it, but that doesn't make it any less frustrating.

    Thanks for the info.
