    Getting HTML formatted input from a rich-text textarea field

    Asked by dalepotter_upreach on March 21, 2014 at 06:10 AM

    Hello, I have a sample form for inputting rich text: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/40784933969978

    I'm trying to get access to the HTML formatted text from these fields - i.e. so it would show '<p>Test text</p>', if I entered 'Test text' in the rich-text textarea field.  Is there a way to do this?

    Perhaps this be accessed through the webhook method?

    Thanks in advance for all your help!
