Has anyone else had issues with special characters?

tilde '~'
caret '^'
ampersand '&'
dollarsign '$'
doublequote '"'
semicolon ';'

With ~; It will display the character, but any attempt to access the grid will cause the grid to error out.

With $^&" It will display the caracter, but any checks against the count of selected rows on the grid return a selected count of 0, even if rows are selected.

Hi Nathan,

Thanks for posting your query to us.

I am afraid that I am not able to reproduce the issue with the special characters in Grid. Also, I have created a sample to test this issue and please refer the sample in the link below:


Please try running the sample and if still the issue exists could you please try reproducing it in the above sample so that we could analyse further and sort out the cause to provide you a better solution?
