    Escape characters

    Nick Chard

      Hi all

       

      When deploying some content to a file, is there an escape character?

       

      I have found that when deploying an html entity name, BladeLogic processes this, and changes it to the character in the file that is deployed.

      Eg.

      <add key="MySearchValues" value="Some Text &lt;  Some other text &lt; Title" />

      is deployed as

      <add key="MySearchValues" value="Some Text <  Some other text < Title" />

       

      I have found that this also works the other way round, but only when the special character is contained in a parameter

      Eg.

      <add key="MySearchValues" value="??Something.in.a.parameter??" />

      If ??Something.in.a.parameter?? = Some Text <  Some other text < Title

      is deployed as

      <add key="MySearchValues" value="Some Text &lt;  Some other text &lt: Title" />

       

      Has anyone else seen this behaviour and found a fix for it? So far I have been running a PowerShell script that performs a find and replace as a Post Command, but this is far from ideal.
