Re: [birt-dev] BIRT HTML request value

Hi Shravali,

I see a couple of issues:

1) The text control can accept HTML with <VALUE-OF format="HTML">.  If the user enters HTML nothing more needs to be done.  On the other hand if you want the user to enter markdown then you will need to find a markdown to html converter.  There are many out there.  If something else then you would need to provide your own code to convert it to HTML.

2) The default parameter window in BIRT does not support a textarea form of input.  If you are providing your own web interface for the report then this isn't a problem because you can provide a textarea for the user and then pass it to the report as a single string.  If you are stuck with the default parameter window then the user will have to enter it as a single string which would be cumbersome.  Getting around this is possible but would probably be complex and involve extensions to BIRT.
