entity form convert textarea html to plain text

Hi i have an entity form which has a read only text area , however in the model driven app it is a multi line text area and therefore when viewed on a entity form on a portal it is including the HTML tags. I would like to strip out the html tags



I found a similar post on dynamics forum Adxstudio Entity Form: Display field as HTML - Microsoft Dynamics CRM Forum Community Forum   however this appear not to work.


I think i am looking at some kind of jquery on the entity form, to get the value of the textarea and replace without the html tags.


Any help would be appreciated.




Hi @sbonera,

If you just want to strip the HTML:

var $original = $("#new_multilineschemahere");
var $new = $("<div></div>");
