Best way to handle XSS vulnerabilities in custom visuals

Hey all,

 

I'll jump in here and ask something I've been stuck on for a while.

I've been working on this custom visual to display html formatted paragraphs so that I can pass formatting inline with value data into a custom visual for long text, which is useful for text fields.

 

The gitHub Repo is here:

https://github.com/mjbellomo/pbvizHtmlVisual

 

For simplicity's sake I'd like to be able to be able to set the innerHTML = dataView.Table.Rows.ToString() but I'm concious of the vulnerabilites intruduced by doing so, short of adding in all of the various format options into the format panel individually.

 

Thoughts?

Hello @mjbellomo,

 

Thanks for your feedback.

I think that you can use js-xss to prevent a XSS injection.
