Posting Code and Getting Emoticons

Hi @eharris04 ,

I wanted to take a momment and make a suggestion. I noticed when using the code window in forum posts, sometimes, character combinations create emoticons that translate out to long text for the emoticon when the code is coppied and pasted in a solution. If caught, not a big deal if you know the keyboard combinations for emoticons but with larger blocks of code, it can be a challenge to sort out if you do not know what you are looking for.  Is there a way you can have emoticons turned off in the code window?

An example is where the following is used (lets see if it actually happens in this test instance)...

 

(function(formControlCall, isHidden) {
some code
}("{ControlSmiley Frustratedelf}", AccountAssignment !== "F")

Then when coppied and pasted, the offending characters show up as...

}("{ControlSmiley Frustratedelf}", AccountAssignment !== "F")

 

I got the above example from a code window in the following post:

Repeating Section Rows Resizing With Hidden Controls

 

Thanks for all you do for us!

Best Regards,

Patrick

Hi @kelliganp,

Apologies for confusing you, but my remark was meant to be funny, not serious. Hence my twinky smiley.... But you do have a valid point that it is at least annoying to see some of the pasted code/text being converted in a smiley.
