unescape() textarea field flashes escape character (%20..etc. ) before showing normal text.
Posted on 2007-03-30
On my HTML page, I am allowing the user to enter a 1000 character text area field.
On Submit, I use the escape() method on the field because the data is being sent to the AS400. When returning to the page, I use an unescape() method in my onLoad function. The problem is that I get a flash of the escape characters before the noraml text appears in the textarea box. Is there anyway to prevent to this?
