Unable to send XML tags to admin notification

  1. I am using version 1.7.3 and I am trying to get text sent to the admin email that retains the XML tag fileds delimited by < and >.

    This is the php code in functions.php

    /**
    * GravityForms
    * send notifications as text
    */
    add_filter('gform_notification', 'change_notification_format', 10, 3);
    function change_notification_format( $notification, $form, $entry ) {

    $notification['message_format'] = "text"; //changing notification format to text

    return $notification;
    }

    This is the notification message.

    {all_fields}

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Computer XML data

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    <firstname>{First name:1}</firstname>
    <middlename>{Middle:2}</middlename>
    <lastname>{Last name:3}</lastname>
    <Address_line1>{Address (Street Address):12.1}</Address_line1>
    <Address_line2>{Address (Address Line 2):12.2}</Address_line2>
    <Address1_city>{Address (City):12.3}</Address1_city> ...

    And text received by the admin email has & l t {data} & g t instead of <{data}>

    As a result, the data import function into my database can't read the XML tags because of the missing carats

  2. oops - the received email content got formatted correctly in the post...

    What the text looks like is the & g t; instead of > and & l t instead of <
