Dataverse | New Text Formats | json, richtext

Text in Dataverse is a data type that can store a max of 4000 characters. Text has multiple formats that instruct the UI to treat it differently.

As an example, Email is a text format tells the client to treat the contents of the field as an email. It can display the data as a link that, when clicked, launches your default email client and inserts the address in the To: field.

There are 2 new formats, json and richtext have been introduced.

Json 

  • json format will store text strings in a json format.
  • This format will not perform any validations on the correctness of the json. It simply allows you to store, view, and retrieve the content with json markup.
  • This is currently limited for use on non-SQL tables (like Data Lake).

Richtext 

  • richtext format will allow the use of markup tags to format your text when viewed in a compatible control.
  • By setting this value you can enable richtext for any other text or multiline text column.
  • A control is coming soon in the Canvas and Model Driven space that will be used whenever a column indicates it is richtext.
