C# - HTML Formatting Tags Being Ignored In MVC2?

Feb 28, 2011

I've looked around and can't find a solution for this and it's driving me mad.I've got a basic MVC2 app (C#) and am trying to display text from a database with the line breaks included. I've used the following:

<span class="fieldBlock"><%: Model.Description.Replace(System.Environment.NewLine, "<br />") %></span>

This is adding the tags to the returned string as I'd expect but when the page renders it actually displays the tag as is instead of rendering the newline. ie. the text seen by the user in the browser is:"Quisque justo erat, iaculis sit amet aliquam eu, porttitor in mauris.<br /><br />Maecenas nisi velit, euismod at molestie vitae, malesuada id turpis. Mauris diam nisl, pretium id molestie nec, posuere posuere neque.<br /><br />Cras sed lectus nisl."

.net - Formatting HTML As Text?

Mar 30, 2011


In this section, I am trying to manually add in tabs and line spaces so the string is formatted when displayed via the pre tag. But this does not work.

objStringBuilder.Append("<div>" & Environment.NewLine)
objStringBuilder.Append(vbTab & "<div>some text</div>" & Environment.NewLine)
objStringBuilder.Append("</div>" & Environment.NewLine)
Return "<pre>" & Server.HtmlEncode(objStringBuilder.ToString) & "</pre>"


I have tried the following, but it does not work:

return "<pre>" & Server.HtmlEncode("<div><div>some text</div></div>") & "</pre>"

I want it to display something like this

<div>some text</div>

But it's diplaying like this, which is expected:

<div><div>some text</div></div>

I don't know how to get spaces, tabs, carriage returns into that string which are recognizable by the pre tag, as environment.newline and/or vbtab make no difference.


Is it possible to display HTML as text on your page in a formatted manner? For example, it should contain white spaces, tabs etc etc for readability purposes:

From another question, I have learned how to display HTML as text as follows:

Server.HtmlEncode("<div>Some text</div>");

MVC HTML Layout C# Code Formatting?

May 23, 2010

I insert into asp.net mvc views C# logic that manages layout like the following:


I try to minimize <% %> code placing "{" symbol on the same line as it's condition (java-style). Html layout looks more clear to me after that.

Do you apply C# formatting rules to <% %> html injections "}" should be on a new line or manage layout in different way?

Html - Formatting Strings In .NET Razor?

Jul 27, 2010

I am currently writing a small templating system in ASP.NET to allow users to add content. For example, the user can enter the string (variable type is string).

topHeader[x] = "They think it's all over. It is now!";

However, one change that's needed is the ability to add some basic HTML tags within this content, so the following can be done

topHeader[x] = "They think it's all over. <strong>It is now!</strong>" or

topHeader[x] = "They think it's all over. <a title="Football News" href="URL">It is now!</a>";

If you add such things into strings now they are not formatted as HTML, but I want to somehow escape them so that they can be. Naturally I've looked on the Internet for the answer, but as Razor is fairly new there's not much out there to help me out.

C# - Exporting HTML To Excel Without Losing Formatting?

Feb 9, 2010

I have a asp.net page that generates a report. For better or for worse, the entire thing is generated using nested tables. I am able to export the page to excel, however I lose all my formatting (can't set column widths, etc). Is there a way to handle this? I'm open to adding any goofy MS Office -specific tags that are required to the html side of it.

If this isn't feasible and if anyone has any other ideas, the requirement is that users need a report that:

a) They can manually touch up with some personalization / area-specific data

b) Needs to be hide/show columns based on user's location

c) Needs to run from the web site.

VS 2013 / Inline HTML Formatting With Razor?

Dec 11, 2015

I have this razor code ...

@("hello <i>world</i>")
hello <i>world</i>

When I run it the italic attribute works on the second item, but not on the first. I'm guessing it doesn't work because it's being passed as a literal string and the html formatting is lost.

How can this be made to work?

The reason I ask is because in my project, the text for the list item is stored in a database and I want the ability to include formatting for the item at the database level.

@Html.Raw("hello <i>world</i>")

However, I am not getting the result I need, so here is a bit more code....

@helper addNodes(dcNode As DocumentContent)
@<li id=@dcNode.Id>
@dcNode.nodeTitle <--This results in "White Papers - <i>New</i>"
@Html.Raw(dcNode.nodeTitle) <--The truncates the string at the tag and results in "White Papers -"
@If dcNode.children.Count > 0 Then
@For Each childNode As DocumentContent In dcNode.children.Values
@<ul id=@dcNode.nodeTitle>@addNodes(childNode)</ul>
End If
End Helper

This is a recursive helper that populates node for a jsTree and works fine, but the inline html is not working. Here is what the result looks like.

The text for each li is shown twice because I am showing it once without and once with HTML.RAW. Notice the "White Paper" item... the second text is truncate at the <i> tag.Why is this and how can I fix it?

Get Html Tags From Textbox In C#

Sep 2, 2010

I have a text area in my ASP.NET web application that is used to enter html code. Now there is also an button control, which upon clicking should retrieve just the text placed between certain html tags in the text box. For example:

1) User types html code including tags etc. and clicks the OK button
2) In my code the text from the text area is retrieved and only the part between a <p></p> tag should be saved to a string object.

I can obviously get the text from the text area and attach it to a string object but I am not able to work out how to just get text within a certain html tag like <p></p>

ASP Literal Or Page Altering HTML String Causes Formatting

Jun 16, 2010

We have a service that generates a report (using word templates and a 3rd party library), and then returns a string in HTML. While this HTML isn't great - its formatted correctly in this string. We want this HTML to show up on a page - format intact. What we currently have done is set an ASP.net Literal's text element to this string. While this works, I have noticed that it has reformatted the HTML string slightly. For the most part, it looks like it generated a bunch of new CSS classes, and a new style element in the HTML. This HTML does not exist in the string thats being returned. I could filter all of this back out, but wonder if there is a better way. I assume that the Page itself is altering something. What is the best way to display this raw HTML back to the user? I can't directly use a Response.Write(string), because this page does have a few other controls on it.

How To Detect Html Tags In DataColumn

Mar 25, 2011

In may page, i am assigning DataTable to a GridView as follows:

GridView1.DataSource = GetDataTable();

Now,the definition of GetDataTable is as follows:

DataTable abcd = new DataTable();
DataRow dr;
abcd.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Column1"));
abcd.Columns.Add(new DataCoumn("Column2"));
dr["Column1"]="My Name";
dr["Column2"]="<p>My Address Line1</p><p>My Address Line2</p>";

dont bother about code syntax or functions, I just dont have actual code right now.Its on the similar lines...

My question is, when i see GridView, It prints <p></p> in Column2 as it is.. it doesnt consider those tags as HTML tags...

I want DataColumn to consider those tags as HTML, so that my address gets printed on two different lines but in same column.

If you guys have any other way to work around... just the thing is that I must assign DataTable to GridView.
