Category

basics

Syntax

htmlFilter="identity|acf|empty|striptags"

Usage

In Design mode, click All Properties and look for htmlFilter under basics.

For receiving data, see htmlFilterIn - HTML Filtering Processor Name Receiving.

The processors work as follows:
  • The identity filter returns the original string.
  • The acf processor parses HTML text and filters out unsafe constructs based on a configuration file (acf-config.xml).
  • The empty engine removes everything and returns an empty string.
  • The striptags processor removes all tags using the regular expression replaceAll("\\<.*?>","").

For the Notes® client, the acf configuration file is typically located at xsp\nsf\acf-config.xml in the Notes install. You must also add the following line to the xsp.properties file in the same folder: xsp.htmlfilter.acf.config=acf-config.xml. A sample configuration file is located at data\properties\acf-config.xml.sample.
