[archive] Preformatted/collapse

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 24 June 2009]


I hope that someone can help me with this issue.

I've a field(text) which gets it's data from within a program, then later this field will be printed out.
Problem: the field will be printed truncated (preformatted) and printed normal (collapse) . I need to print this field preformatted.
Note: when the input to this text field happens interactive(from the user), there's no problem at all with the preformatted.

Any tips?
