    Advanced Alerts - HTML - Tables - Extra returns (<br>)

      Hi All,

       

      In regard to the discussion below

      HTML Formatting in Advanced Alerts

      I'd like to say this is still a problem in NPM 12.4

       

      E.g. this HTML code in the Trigger Actions of an alert

      <table>

        <tr>

          <th>Header1</th>

          <th>Header2</th>

        </tr>

        <tr>

          <td>Data1</td>

          <td>Data2</td>

        </tr>

      </table>

       

      Would generate a lot of extra <br>.

       

      The only workaround is to put everything in one line

      <table><tr><th>Header1</th><th>Header2</th></tr><tr><td>Data1</td><td>Data2</td></tr></table>

       

      With big tables though, it's not very readable.

       

      For some reason, I'm able to reply to that post and I'm wondering if someone's got a solution.

       

      Thanks!

          Build/modify your scripts in notepad++ and then remove all the line breaks before you copy them back into the alert message?

          This behavior has not changed.

           

          At the end of the day I find you can usually accomplish something MUCH simpler to type/read/modify without getting into the whole elaborate HTML table formatting, something like below gets pretty much the same effect and requires a lot less mucking about in HTML fussing over formatting.  It's not horizontal I guess but it gets the job done.

           

          Node: ${Caption}

          IP: {IP_Address}

          etc: ${etcvariable}
