Display complicated html string (as an string attribute) on page

I have a string attribute which contains the complete html-code I need to display. The html code is dynamic, I have a button which make a GET request that can update the code.   The string contains stylings etc, so I think I need to display it in an IFrame. The HTML seems to be too complex to utilize the IFrame srcDoc feature. I have managed to display it (not using mendix at all) using <iframe width="800" height="600" src="embedded.html"></iframe> But I don't know how to achieve this in Mendix when I have the code in an attribute.   I have also successfully displayed the code (again outside mendix) using writeLn.  I tried implementing this in mendix by using the htmlSnippet and JavaScript snippet. But the browser console returns SyntaxError; Invalid or unexpected token

If you need to inject dynamic HTML into the page you will find the HTML Element in the Marketplace is probably best to use.




You could use a Call REST action to get the content, returning this as a String that you can show on a page using the HTML Element widget.


Be very careful doing this, as it's a potential attack vector for a malicious third party to inject code into your application pages.


Good luck!
