I would like to write screen data to disk. Using the command below results in the area being written to a file including html tags.
<TEMAIL subject="d:newlogin.doc"
<tearea 1 1 21 80>
How would i print the screen data from the area specified without the html tags?

Comment To completely control it so you have a nice screen dump on the disk:
<!-- suppress all output except what
    we want to show -->

<TELOOP line 1 24>
  <TESHOW Screen(line,1,80)+"\n">
The TENOTEXT tag, along with the secret ability to output CR's with the \n are the key to the answer!

Comment It worked! just one more question, how would i loop through screens again and write the results of this to a diskfile. What would be the best approach to this? Here's my plan:

From the main menu a student clicks on a button to go to "Academic History" -- this goes to a section with multiple screens listing the student's grades.

On the very first screen of that section, I would like to provide a link to print their entire academic history.

I guess the link would call a transaction which contains the process which would write out the entire academic history to a file. This transaction would loop through screens writing the data for those screens until it ends (ie.. if "more" <>"" then exit loop)

Does this plan sound feasible? Or could you recommend another approach?

Comment Sure it sounds feasible-- why don't you just display it in the browser, maybe in a new target browser window?

Is it that you want to give them a file to download?

If so, sure, sounds fine. I would name the file based on their Gold userid, then give them a link to download it using ftp.

Wild and whacky, but if you have a MAPI32 mail system on the Screensurfer machine, the tag you are using can also e-mail them the file as an attachment :)
