    Form Builder 4.0: Data Grid widget doesn't allow to use HTML tags

    Asked by amy on April 10, 2017 at 01:22 AM

    Data Grid widget doesn't allow to use HTML tags in form builder v4 while it allows to use them in form builder v3. When the user adds HTML tags to Data Grid in form builder v4, they will disappear in publish mode. However, everything works properly in v3. If the user wants to add HTML tags to Data Grid, s/he needs to use form builder v3.

    HTML tags which have been created in v3:

    HTML tags which have been created in v4:

    Hi, sorry for the long wait and I'm sorry to hear that but yes that is true the v4 builder completely strip html values on widget options field. We are starting to consider using markdown but that's still far from reality. If you wish to use html tags(in a safe way) consider opening your form from v3, but v4 will no longer support it and soon probably v3 will.
