Carriage Return and Line Feed in the list view fields

Hi all,

after the last CU applied on our environment, the fields in the list views which contain CR and LF are visualized actually on many lines according to the CR + LF present in the field (before they were visualized on one line only).

I would need to come back to the old visualization.

Is there a way to obtain this result? 

Thanks a lot.

It sounds like the recent CU update has changed the way line breaks (CR and LF) are displayed in list view fields, and you would like to revert to the old behavior where the fields were displayed on a single line.

Unfortunately, without knowing more about the specific environment, application, and update that was applied, it's difficult to provide a precise solution. However, here are a few general steps you could try:

  1. Check if there are any configuration settings or options that control how line breaks are displayed in list views. Depending on the application or platform, there may be a setting that allows you to adjust this behavior.

  2. If the update has caused a change in the formatting of the data itself, you may need to modify the data to remove the line breaks. This could be done manually or programmatically, depending on the amount of data and the tools available.

  3. If the above steps do not work, you may need to contact the vendor or support team for the application or platform for further assistance. They may be able to provide guidance on how to revert to the previous behavior or offer a workaround.

Hi Xiopron,

Thanks for the suggestions. There is no chance in the designer to change it.

In the end I solved putting a replace in the SQL view under the list view.


Thank you!
