since we have the new HTML widget and for those writing XML files straight from uniface code, there is a natural conflict between the precompiler constants and the tags wjhich should end up in the string. One option would be to disable constant replacements for a given area #noprecompilerconstants ...... your code here #endnoprecompilerconstants another one would be a new character which will be replaced at the very end of the precompilin process. just like the \\\"french quotation\\\" marks or enhancements of the GOLD set or do not convert precompiler constants in blockdata (where normal uniface processing like \\\"%%myfield%%%\\\" conversions are disabled

Use Case

direct write of XML and HTML code without conflict with precompiler constants someone may have globally defined in between.





Operating System

Not Applicable
