NetWebForm- Change Password
« on: March 10, 2023, 03:15:13 PM »

I have a memory form with 3 string fields: Old Password, New Password1, New Password2.  Using a password generator a user tried to change their password to fx^i*q-tXP3DM,rur}W&#t

When leaving the NewPassword1 and NewPassword2 field NetTalk removes the &#t from the end of the password.

I seem to remember that there was a template setting to allow HTML and unsafe HTML but can't find it anywhere for a string field.  The Wizard generated LoginForm does allow for that password to be used.  I'm just stuck trying to see what is different on the LoginForm and my form.  Any suggestions?

Morning David,

so this falls into the category of "unlucky". In HTML world the combination &# has a special meaning, and so as the string flows through the system it basically gets removed, and because there's only one char after that, it's getting removed as well.

I'm going to fiddle a bit on my end to see if this case can be detected, but for now I recommend just generating another random password.
