Formatting Text in RPE

Dylan Mansour (2113) | asked Sep 16 '16, 4:45 p.m.

I am making a report in RPE pulling from DOORS.

I would like for the report to print object number and object heading on the same line with out stripping the format.

I used a text box with this script expression:
   'heading_number + " " + object_heading'
but it strips the formatting.

Looking to the future, I would also like the heading number displayed in the table of contents.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Dylan,
You can use a Script Expression that also uses "level" attribute as explained in

The Script Expression can be:
var headingStartTag = '<heading level="' + level + '">';
var headingEndTag = '</heading>';
var val =  headingStartTag + heading_number + headingEndTag;
if(Object_Heading != ''){
 val = val + Object_Heading;
var replaceText = headingEndTag + headingStartTag;
val = val.replace(replaceText, " ");

Hope you find the blog useful.
