We have an application coded against PowerBuilder 12.0 and 12.1 that we are trying to migrate to PowerBuilder 2017. We have a large number of documents in the RTF format from the PowerBuilder 12.1 RTE control. It appears that the PowerBuilder 2017 RTE Control produces vastly different output from the CopyRTF function on the RTE Control than was produced in PowerBuilder 12.1.
This is causing us problems because our code depends on pulling the RTF out of the RTE control and then doing various manipulations to it and then reinserting it back into the RTE Control. Because the RTF data string produced by the PowerBuilder 2017 RTE Control CopyRTF method is so different than that of PB 12.1, our code is breaking or producing garbage when it it tries to manipulate it and then reinsert it into the RTE control.
Is there any kind of a migration strategy for taking documents produced using the older RTE control and making them compatible to the new RTE control?
