Item6138: Bullet lists in form fields are not rendered properly

Bullet lists are not rendered in text area form fields if there is other content besides the list. However, when the form field's value is included into another form field using %FORMFIELD , the rendering works. Sometimes only the first item in the list is rendered, and other dot points are rendered as-is (starting with an asterisk) as part of the first dot point.

Hi TWiki:Main/TomaszGrzegurzko, Please provide some example here

Thank you,

-- TWiki:Main.SopanShewale - 21 Jan 2009

Define the form called MyForm, with following content:

| *Name* | *Type* | *Size* | *Values* | *Tooltip message* |
| Name | text | 40 | | |
| Role | text | 40 | | |
| Testsample | text | 40 | | |
|Testingarea|textarea|20x10| | |

Add Form into WebPreferences

Create the topic, attach the MyForm, and add following content to the Testingarea field,

   * Item one
   * Item two 
   * Item four
      * Item four pt one
   * Item five

See the image below - this is an issue


This requires a fix.

Modified the code, added test case in release branch. I have skipped adding test case in "trunk" - need to understand the way cases are written in trunk.

--TWiki:Main.SopanShewale - 19 Feb 2009

Changing this to "waiting for release" for 4.3 release. Opened new Item6230 to track pending code changes in trunk.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 30 Mar 2009

Closing this after TWiki 4.3.0 release
