Multi-row "foreach" crashes


Hello. There is a crash NullPointerException when trying to generate two rows using “foreach” via template and second row contains Aspose tag.
Everything is ok when Aspose tag in second row gets replaced with some constant text.

Sample attached. (10.7 KB)



Please use the <</foreach>> in new row as shown below to avoid this exception.

String html = ("<table>\n" +
        "<tr>\n" +
        "  <td><<foreach [car in cars]>><<[car.p1]>></td>\n" +
        "  <td><<[car.p2]>></td>\n" +
        "</tr>\n" +
        "<tr>\n" +
        "  <td colspan='2'>" + crashCause + "</td>\n" +
        "</tr>\n" +
        "<tr>\n" +
        "  <td colspan='2'><</foreach>></td>\n" +
        "</tr>\n" +
        // escape Aspose tags in HTML
        .replaceAll("<<", "&lt;&lt;")
        .replaceAll(">>", "&gt;&gt;");


Thanks a lot, that helped to avoid the crash. Unfortunately, it adds extra row at the bottom of the table (please see attached image). Our design requires borders around table cells so this extra row becomes visible. Is there a way to remove the extra row?
