Convert Text Block -> XML Block

Thursday 01 December 2005 12:56:30 pm - 5 replies

Because I would like to make use of en eZ Online Editor I need to change all fields in my class definitions that are currently Text Blocks to XML Blocks. This is not a problem, however the data stored in the old text blocks is not converted to XML Block data. Obvously it is nog acceptable to loose all existing data.

What would be the best way to go about this change from text blocks to XML blocks with the preservation of the data stored in de text block fields?

Thanks for your help.

And add a eztextblock to ezxmlblock translator...

But exactly what are the eZ API PHP functions/methods for doing correct conversions?
