My users submit their text with a wysiwyg text editor. When I return the submitted values the HTML tags are also returned. How could I avoid this and see the formatted text instead?
Any help is appreciated.

<asp:BoundField HeaderText="Message" DataField="Message" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Left" ></asp:BoundField>

I would say to use a contenttemplate and then bind to a label directly! This way the html will get rendered in the browser and you will be able to see the formatted text!

hope this helps!

Yes, it helped. Thank you very much. This is what made it work:

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Message" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Left" >
<ItemTemplate><%# Eval("Message") %>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>
