Email Macro & Transformation

Seb Mash asked on May 24, 2017 11:05

Hello,

I have a problem regarding emails interpreting special characters like '<' or '"' as &lt and &quot.

Here's what I'm doing :
I have a DataRowCollections that I'm passing to my MacroResolver.

Within my email template, I'm applying a transformation (Text/XML) on that DataRowCollection.
Transformation call in the mail template : {% itemData.ApplyTransformation("custom.transformations.TestRpt")#%}
Transformation code :
<tr style="background-color:#f1f1f1;padding:5px 10px;">
<td>{% itemNumber%}</td>
<td>{% itemName %}</td>
<td>{% itemTotalPrice %}</td>
</tr>

When I receive the email, the values contained inside itemNumber, itemName and ItemTotalPrice are correct.

BUT the html tags are not interpreted as HTML but as plain Text !

So instead of having <td>abc</td> I get "<td>abc</td>"

How can I fix this?

Hi Seb, could you try to disable HTML encoding for your macro to see if that helps?

{% itemData.ApplyTransformation("custom.transformations.TestRpt")|(encode)false %}

This way, it shouldn't encode the HTML tags and therefore return expected HTML format.

Hi Seb,

The way you are using transformation and marco in email template is correct. only the problem I believe due to macro not resolving in email template properly check with kentico hot-fix version 10.0.4 for macro fixes read bug resolved in different version's.

The version I'm currently using is the 10.0.8, so this doesn't help me unfortunatly

that is really important, thank you - and incredible that nobody would identify whether you hadn't seen the internals

So I played roughly with at a bit - am I right that Alteryx is simply doing a content match for the correct string '(Optional)' to decide whether a stricture is flexible or not?

It is case fragile - '(discretionary)' doesn't work.

It's similarly space touchy - '( Optional)' moreover doesn't work. TheEssayHelp
