[SOLVED] Green Checkmark Generates as Black on Portal

I am generating a green checkmark in a report with this function '&|#x2714'. After integrating the report onto a portal page, the checkmark generates as a black color. Has anyone experienced anything similar....something automatically generating in a different color on the portal or has any ideas? I want it to generate as green on the portal as well.

Could you show us your code using a sample file so we can try it?

Some of the unicode characters display differently in each of the browswers. The x2713 character seems more consistent, color can be styled with css:
TABLE FILE systable
PRINT NAME NOPRINT
COMPUTE
x2713/A80 = '<div style=color:limegreen;font-weight:900;>&|#x2713</div>'; 
WHERE READLIMIT IS 1
END

quote:
function '&|#x2714'.

First of all, that is not a function. It is a unicode character in base 16 for a heavy black checkmark.

If you want the unicode character for the green checkmark, it is actually two amper characters together that create this ✔️ = &#x2714;&#xfe0f;

Since IBI will look at those as amper variables, you need to escape the amper with the pipe character like this &|#x2714;&|#xfe0f;

Check out this site to see the different check marks available: https://www.amp-what.com/unicode/search/check

Thanks for your posts dbeagan and Hallway. Here is the essence of the code using the sample CAR file with the two amper unicode characters:

  
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM COMPUTE CHK/A10 = IF SEATS EQ 2 THEN '&|#x2714&|#xfe0f' ELSE ''; AS ''
ACROSS COUNTRY AS ''
BY CAR AS ''
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT HTML
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOPAGE
ON TABLE SET AUTOFIT ON
ON TABLE SET TITLELINE ON
ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
END

Format the font color for that DATA COLUMN to GREEN.

Yea Doug, that works for me:
 TABLE FILE ibisamp/car
     SUM SEATS                                             AS ''
 COMPUTE CHK/A20 = IF SEATS EQ 2 THEN '&|#x2714;&|#xfe0f;'
                                 ELSE ' ';                 AS ''
  ACROSS COUNTRY                                           AS ''
      BY CAR                                               AS ''
 ON TABLE SET NODATA ' '
 ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOLEAD
 ON TABLE SET STYLE *
 INCLUDE=IBFS:/FILE/IBI_HTML_DIR/ibi_themes/Warm.sty, $
 TYPE=DATA, ACROSSCOLUMN=CHK, COLOR=GREEN, STYLE=BOLD, $
 ENDSTYLE
 END
