CustomFilterExpressionDisplayTextEventArgs.EncodeHtml Property

Gets or sets a value that specifies whether the filter expression displayed within the filter bar keeps any of its values that are HTML as HTML, or instead, strips out the HTML markers.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v21.1.dll

Declaration

public bool EncodeHtml { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description
Boolean

true if the HTML code contained within the CustomFilterExpressionDisplayTextEventArgs.DisplayText property value is not executed and is converted into the corresponding text for display purposes, false if the property value can contain pure HTML code.

Remarks

If the EncodeHtml property is set to true, the CustomFilterExpressionDisplayTextEventArgs.DisplayText argument property value that contains HTML code is parsed, so that any angle bracket (the characters < and >) of HTML tags is converted to specific symbols (&lt; and &gt;) when the grid renders its value to the page. This allows the HTML code to be displayed on the page as text.

If this property is set to false, the content of the CustomFilterExpressionDisplayTextEventArgs.DisplayText argument property value that contains HTML tags is not specifically parsed, and is rendered as pure HTML markup. This allows the result of the HTML code to be displayed within the grid.

Refer to the HTML Encoding topic for more information on DevExpress ASP.NET controls encoding.
