``` What steps will reproduce the problem? 1. Create a JTable with some HTML cell contents. For example: "<html><b>bold text" 2. Notice that the cell displays the cell contents correctly (i.e., as a bold text in this example). This is because JTables accept HTML strings, just as in other Swing components. 3. Apply a filter with auto choices to this table
What is the expected output? What do you see instead? The filter displays the data as "\<html><b>bold text" instead of rendering it as an HTML-formatted label. This makes the filter ugly and unusable for any table column that contains HTML contents.
What version of the product are you using? On what operating system? 4.2.0 on JVM 1.6.0u17, WinXP
Please provide any additional information below. Notice that if I use CustomChoices instead of the AutoChoices, then the HTML string
- does* render as expected (i.e., with all the relevant HTML formatting).
