[SOLVED] Problem when filling value of a textarea loaded into QWebView
I have a target webpage loaded into my QWebView. In this page there is a textarea which I want to fill in from my application dynamically. I use the following code to fill it in:
void target::HandleTextArea(QWebElement aElement, QString specifier, QString text)
jsCode = QString("$("#%1").val("%2");").arg(specifier).arg(text);
So, eventually the above code generates the following JQuery code as an example to be executed:
@$("#description").val("This is an example text.\n\nThere is multiple of lines here.\nMultiple...\n\nMultiple...");@
So, as you see, the text has already some \n characters in. Actually this text is coming from my database. However, this code doesn't fill anything into the textarea. If I remote \n characters, it places there just fine but of course there is no newline visible. It comes all in one sentence. I have read a lot of documents, JQuery examples, JS examples where this code should be just fine but it doesn't work in QWebView.
Can anyone shed some light here?

If your text comes from database then you need to convert actual newline characters into text "\n" (slash and n character), eg.
If you don't then you're not injecting this:
$("#description").val("This is an example text.\n\nThere is multiple of lines here.\nMultiple...\n\nMultiple...");@
@$("#description").val("This is an example text.
There is multiple of lines here.
That solved my problem. Perfect. Thanks a lot.
