Special Characters ("<", ">") Handling in Grid

I am using purely xml to configure dhtmlxGrid at run time.

  1. when I provide hyperlink for the Grid column containing “<” or “>”, it cannot display correctly.
  2. When I update data with the primary key value containing “<” or “>”, it cannot update correctly and give out errors.
    Please give me some guidelines and what should be done.

Thank you,


Be sure that data correctly escaped, while grid doesn’t care much about special characters in ID or data - XML parser will not process xml with such characters
