We are having issues with the DHTMLX PRO 3.6 with regard to a combo box inside a grid containing special characters like “>”.
The XML is returned with the option wrapped in CDATA and containing > as follows:
<cell type='coro' xmlcontent='true'> <![CDATA[Sales%7CClosing]]> <option value="Sales%7CArm+Twisting"> <![CDATA[Sales > Arm Twisting]]> </option> <option value="Sales%7CClosing"> <![CDATA[Sales > Closing]]> </option> <option value="Sales%7CQuota+Management"> <![CDATA[Sales > Quota Management]]> </option>
However, when the user clicks on the drop down, they are seeing the special encodings “>” visually displayed. However, once they make a selection, then it is rendered properly as “>”.
Please see 2 screenshots, one when user clicks drop down, and one after they make their selection.
