There is no data available for topic "html", feature "dataFormatAs". If you think that there should be data available, consider opening an issue.


The following div example renders data in HTML format.

<div datafld="Column2" dataformatas="html"></div>

The following span example renders data in HTML format.

<span datasrc="#bank_acct" datafld="balance" dataformatas="html"></span>

The following textArea example renders data in text format.

<textarea datasrc="#customer" datafld="address" dataformatas="text" rows=6 COLS=60></textarea>



As of Windows Internet Explorer 7, the DATAFORMATAS attribute is no longer supported for the input type=button object. The dataFld property is not available on param objects; use getAttribute('dataFld') instead. Internet Explorer 5.01 or later honors the regional settings for the user's control panel when the DATAFORMATAS attribute is set to localized-text. Internet Explorer 5.01 or later performs a locale-dependent type conversion on the native value, instead of using the data source object to perform the conversion, when binding a textual element such as a span, div, or input to date, currency, or numeric data. Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 does not provide this feature. To compensate for this limitation, a data source object can implement ISimpleDataConverter to participate in the conversion. Neither of these features is supported in earlier versions of Windows Internet Explorer.
