Line breaks in labels in Dyn365FO

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

Dear Sir/Madam,

It seems labels of new Dynamics AX cannot contain line breaks, even though we implement as instructed in http://axdaily.blogspot.jp/2010/04/labels-with-line-breaks.html

("\n" and "\r\n" do not work)

Appreciated if anyone tell us how to actualize it.

Best regards,

Mitsu

    Hi Mitsu,

    You can solve this in two slightly different ways:

    1. Create a label like @CUS101 = "Line1%1Line2". Then call it like strfmt("@CUS101", num2char(10));

    2. Create a label like @CUS102 = "Line/nLine2". Then call it like strfmtLB("@CUS102");

    The latter function strfmtLB is specifically intended for multiline. The first solution allows for some extra flexibility, which is most always good :)

    One way or the other you'll have to format your label before printing it.

    Hi Mitsugu,

    I got the following answer about this problem from Microsoft Support Team.

    "We do not support formatted text in the Dynamics 365 for Operation product offering. As html in plain text is considered a security threat."

    Therefore, This is a product restriction.

    I sent them improvement request about this.

    Regards,

    Yuki

    Hi StephanieR,

    Thank you for your response. I am afraid I could not find the info about line breaks in your link. Could you point out where we can find it in the link?

    Regards,

    Hi Vilmos and Kavitha,

    Thank you for your response. We tried both strFmtLB() and <br/>, but could not actualize line breaks.

    Appreciated if you could suggest other ways.

    Regards,

    Mitsu

    If you check the link which you have pasted, it clearly states that labels by standard will not work using line break markers.

    You had to use a specific functionality of strFmtLB() in the Global collection class in order to format it like that.

    Did you try to use the same function for the label for which you want line breaks in AX7?

    If yes and it did not work, maybe you could try to put in <br/> tag instead of \n to maybe try to force it as HTML? I have not tried this way, but may be worth a shot. If AX renders it as text, you might have to check the source of the web page in order to insert the correct sequence of characters to close previous sections and interpret it as an actual line break.
