HTML Annimation on Text Areas

Jewelson Cagakit

Recommended Posts

Hi Community,

Did the latest version of TIBCO Spotfire analyst supports some annimation effect on HTML Text areas like for this one?

@keyframes blink{from{background: white;}to{background: red;}

where this background color will blink interchangeably from white to red and vice versa?

Trying this, but it doesnt work. Is there a proper way to re-write it as Spotfire supported syntax?

If not yet, is there a possibility of having this in the future especially when it comes to building static HTML tables with colored backgrounds on values per cell?

Thank you.

First, do you have HTMLSanitation enabled or disabled (https://support.tibco.com/s/article/How-to-disable-the-HTML-Sanitation-check)?

With it disabled, so I could use style etc, using Spotfire Analyst 12.0, so not even the latest 12.5 version , I tested an animation example from w3schools (https://www.w3schools.com/cssref/tryit.php?filename=trycss_animatable), and it worked fine in the text area as well:


Disclaimer: The html sanitation is there for a good reason, and having it enabled is recommended - it's e.g. a good way to reduce the risk of issues when upgrading. For anything you want to do but isn't allowed by the html sanitation, the recommendation is to create/vote for ideas for the specific issue in the Ideas portal, which may result in it becoming supported in a future version.
