How to Use & (Ampersand) in Text

I have a TextView object in a Web Dynpro Java program that contains text which includes the ampersand (&) character. However, the ampersand is converted to '&' when my text is displayed.

How do I get just the ampersand (&) to display in my text?

    hi Scott,

    I think it will be easier to replace your '&' with 'and' 😊 ! else you will have to link the text with a context attribute and populate the context attribute with the requisite string in wdDoInit() method and as Sergei rightly pointed above, this problem does not happen at run time.

    Text & Text - at design time


    Text & Text - looks perfectly as it is supposed to be at run time.

    Thanks and Regards,
