Workflows : Multiline Container Element problem.

Hi,

I got a new problem. Well I got a requirement to collect <b>COMMENTS</b> from <i>MULTI-LEVEL Supervisors</i> and display them in the <i>work item preview</i>. So in these regards, I had declared a Multiline Container element in my Workflow and passed it to some method to get the comments. Well I had succeeded till this point. But there is a problem when I tried to display them in WORKITEM.

Well, all the lines are getting displayed continously in the Work Item preview.

Is there any solution for this ?

Like I want to display the Multiline Container element line wise. Not as a concatenated single line which is happening right now.

In the Work Item Text part I used it as ...

Comments from Supervisor : &COMMENTS&

This is FYI...

Please help me.

Regards,

Raja Sekhar.

    Hello,

    When you insert a multine container element in a workitem text you will get a popup with 3 radiobullets how the element must be displayed. I do not know them by head, but 1 of them is that you can display all lines of the element.

    The element will look like &ELEMENT[]& in the workitem text.

    Is this where you looking for?

    Hi Raja,

    Implement carriage return at the end of each line.

    Thanks

      Hi Vinod,

      Well, I tried including the MULTI LINE Element in a Mail step. It gave me all the three options of printing.

      First one is...

      Only first line of Container element can be printed using

      &COMMENT&

      Second one is...

      All the lines of Container element can be printed in a single line as &COMMENT[]&

      Third one is...

      All the lines of Container element can be printed in seperate lines as &COMMENT##&

      I used the third one. It worked even the same in Work Item also.

      Regards,

      Raja Sekhar
