    HTML in List Boxes

      Hi everyone!

       

      Some time ago I developed a dashboard that loaded data from a mySQL database (that I have no control over).

       

      On the dashbaord is a list box that displayed data from a text field ('Task Actions') within the database.

       

      However, recently the database has been enhanced and users of it can now format the text they enter into the Task Actions field.

      The result is that in my List box I now get a whole heap of HTML formatting codes:

      Is there a way to either strip out the coding, or to display it 'correctly' formatted?

       

      For info, I have QV for Windows, version 10.00.8811.6 SR1, and use MySQL ODBC connector 5.1.7-win32.

       

       

      Any help greatfully received! Thanks.
