Extra spaces trimmed in between words from a column



When values are stored using spaces in between, the extra spaces are trimmed.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Store some column with spaces in between.
2. Retreive values through report definition.

Root Cause

 HTML rules by default truncate multiple spaces to single space.


This issue is resolved through the following local-change:

Create a custom control with <pre> tags enclosed. This newly created custom control is used in the RepeatGrid to display the value of that specific property with multiple spaces.

Following is an example:

String subj = tools.getActiveValue();
tools.putSaveValue("result", subj);
<pre><pega:reference name='$save(result)' mode="NORMAL" /></pre>

However the CSS changes, this newly created control displays differently from other fields.
