dhtmlxconnector and special characters

When I try to load on the dhtmlxgrid data with accents or special characters like & get an error “Incorrect XML”

To load the data I’m using dhtmlxconnector


Is there a way to solve this

Which component is used in problematic case?
Normally , connectors wraps all data in CDATA sections, so special chars can be processed without extra handling.

You can try to use beforeRender event to workaround the issue.
function my_escape($data){
$value = $data->get_value(“field_name”);
$value = str_replace("&","&",$value);

Sorry for the confusion & works well
The problem happens with the Spanish accent (á, é, í, ó, ú)

The components used are dhtmlxgrid v.2.1 build 90226 and dhtmlxConnector for PHP v.0.9 build 90226

$grid->set_encoding(“iso-8859-1”); //sets xml encoding
$grid->render_ …
