Default problem displaying text fron Db to textarea


I am using textarea in my form. I saved the text in Oracle. Before I display value for textarea, I used Replace method. Here is my code for Replace.

strrisks = rs("risks")
if isNULL(strrisks) then
strrisks = NULL
strrisks = Replace(strrisks, vbCrLf, "<BR>")
strrisks = Replace(strrisks, " ", "&nbsp;")
end if

when I have to display the data, I use this code....

<INPUT type="radio" name="chkrec" value="x"

When it displays , it displays text with <BR>


Can someone please help me. I spent lot of time on this.

Thank you

I think its coz you have this line using single quotes

<INPUT type="radio" name="chkrec" value="x" 

Remove them and see what happens

  risks is a server side variable and onclick is a client side event.

It is possible
<textarea name="txt1" rows="3" cols="20"><%=risks%></textarea>

other wise, store risks in a hidden field and in the radio onclick event, call that value from hidden field.

Hi there,

I assume that form1.risk refers to the textarea. If so, textarea doesn't have a value attribute. The text has to be displayed between <textarea> and </textarea> tags. So you cannot do it that way.

<textarea>my text</textarea>

Should do that as suggested by rajanikrishna. May be you can use an IF condition to check if Radio button is checked and based on that display the strrisks variable inbetween the textarea tags.

Also you don't have to replace VBCRLF with <BR> when you want to display that in a textarea, as it doesn't understand <BR> as line-break, instead VBCRLF would do that for you inside textarea.

Hope that helps.
