Web-Editor8, why the content of the Container variable is not displayed on the web-browser or the MB-display?

FAQ #101925

If on the Web-Editor8 a container variable is copied from the Web-Editor8 help file with copy paste in to the Web-editor8 painter, then it’s possible that not only the name of the variable is copied but also an invisible 'CR''LF' character.

In such a case, the container variable name does not correspond to the required name and the special action of this container variable is not performed.

 

Example with the container variable 'MB_InactivityCounter'
Copy form the Web-Editor8 file
