I have a page containing some input text boxes and a ice:tree. Clicking on a node in the tree populates the text boxes. Some of the values are quoted (e.g. "word") and these are the ones I have problems with.
If I have a value binding associated with the input box and assign to that a String which is surrounded by literal quotation marks that value is not displayed by the DTD Renderer (which I believe is a bug). If I escape the quotation marks to " then they are displayed as I would expect. However if I then click on a + to expand a section of the tree all of the quoted values vanish and the unquoted values remain.
I haven't yet done enough investigation to determine how generic the problem is but I thought I would bring it to your attention.
Yes, I see what you're saying about quoted strings not coming out properly in inputText components. The quotation marks aren't escaped and the output html looks something like:
which is invalid HTML. I've passed this on to our developers , who'll look into it shortly.
I'm not exactly sure what you mean when you say that when you expand a tree node the all of the quoted values vanish though. Could you elaborate on this?
I don't believe that expanding a tree node is particularly relevant, it probably happens whenever the screen is rendered.
My point was simply that even if I escape the value in the backing bean to contain " instead of a literal ". The first time the value is displayed it appears on the screen correctly as a " but when the screen is next rendered (e.g by expanding a tree node) the bug manifests and the value gets rendered as value=""node 8"" and the value appears to vanish from the input field.
I would appreciate it if you could find out from your developers if this will be fixed, and the currently projected timeframe in which it will be released.
