KnowledgeKube Release 5.5.84.2

What's New

KnowledgeKube Release 5.5.84.2 adds support for markdown, a plain text format for writing structured documents, based on formatting conventions from e-mail and Usenet.

Markdown will allow you to build all kinds of content managed apps that allow a user to format text for any device without resorting to formats such as HTML.

Learn markdown in 60 seconds

The MarkdownToHtml function converts a string that contains markdown annotations into a HTML structured document.

For example:

Result := MarkdownToHtml("*Italic*, **bold**, and `monospace`")

Will produce the following HTML:

<em>Italic</em>, <strong>bold</strong>, and <code>monospace</code>

Syntax:

Result := MarkdownToHtml(text, [1])

Argument Description
text to convert (Required) The markdown annotated text or string variable you would like to convert to HTML.
remove markup (Optional) Use 1 to strip out any markdown annotations and return the text without converting it to HTML.
