The extract_text function uses KeyView to extract text from a data string.


extract_text( data, isHtml)


Argument Description
data (string) A string containing the data to extract text from.
isHtml (Boolean) Specifies whether the data is a snippet of HTML (default false). If the data is a standard HTML document then you do not need to set this argument, because KeyView automatically recognizes HTML documents. You might need to set this argument in cases where the data contains HTML markup but is not a complete document that begins with an <html> tag.


String. Returns the text extracted from the string.


local htmlSnippet = "some <b> html </b> with <i> unwanted </> markup";
local text = extract_text(htmlSnippet, true);
