Outputting the contents of a collection to a HTML Text Field

Hi

 

I am trying to output the contents of a collection to an HTML text field as a table.but the HTMLText field does not like the "ForAll" statement in the middle of it.

 

texttexttexttexttexttexttexttext

 

ForAll(theCollection, Item1,Row1,Item2,Row2 etc etc

 

texttexttexttexttexttexttexttext

 

I can put values of a variable into the HTMLTExt field eaily.

 

THanks

 

Nigel

You can use the Concat function to convert the rows in the collection to the rows in the HTML table. For example, if you have a collection with properties Name and Age, you can have this expression to create a HTML table that can be displayed in the HTML Text control:

"<table border='1' width='100%'>" &
"<thead><tr><th>Name</th><th>Age</th></thead>" &
"<tbody>" &
Concat(CollectionName, "<tr><td>" & Name & "</td><td>" & Age & "</td></tr>") &
"</tbody></table>"

The attached app shows this expression for a sample collection.
