Render string that has HTML

  • I have a string that has embedded html and I am trying to render it. I normally use something like: <div dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{ __html: string }}/>

    I can't get this to work in jsreport since the double bracket tells JS Report that the __html is a function.

    Is is there a way to have js report render the string a html???

    I need something like <div dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{ __html: {{myString}} }}/>.. which just blows up

    hi! it depends on the engine that you are using. if you are using handlebars you can use triple bracket to tell handlebars to not escape html {{{myString}}}, however it seems your react.js syntax is messing with handlebars so you need to tell handlebars to not process the {{ _html part, so the final syntax that should work is this:

    <div dangerouslySetInnerHTML=\{{ __html: {{{myString}}} }}></div>

  • Well, you solve it ! :) .. interestingly enough I just used the triple bracket and it worked PERFECT. I did not even have to use the div.. very nice.. I did not know the {{{ even existed.. very nice.. thank you !
