Unfortunately Token API only return the plain text format of the subject. ItemGetText() token may be working as designed to return the plain text format of the subject, unless Novell decide to update or add another Token API to return RTF format.

In order to extract the RTF property of the subject, you will need to use the Object API. If you are working with a draft message (which is not yet saved to the message store) then you will need to save the draft message.

The sample code below save the message to Work-Folder (if the message ID “X00”) then use the Object API to access the RTF property.

Sub Main(Client, GWEvent)

  dim iWIPFolderPath
  dim oMsg
  dim iMsgID
  dim iWIPPath
  dim iBreakCount

  ' Get the message ID
  iMsgID = GroupWise.ItemMessageIDFromView

  ' If the draft message then save to WIP otherwise access the message
  if (iMsgID = "X00") then

    ' Save the message to WIP
    call GetWIPFolderPath(groupwise.account.workfolder, iWIPPath)
    msgbox "Work In Progress folder path: " & iWIPPath
    Call Groupwise.throwtoken("ItemSaveMessageDraft(""" & iWIPPath & """)", iReturnVal)

    iBreakCount = 0
    while (iMsgID = "Token failed execution!") or (iMsgID = "X00")
       iMsgID = GroupWise.ItemMessageIDFromView
       iBreakCount = iBreakCount + 1
       Utilities.Trace iBreakCount & ": " & iMsgID
       if (iBreakCount > 10) then
         exit sub
       end if

    set oMsg = GroupWise.Account.GetMessage(iMsgID)

    set oMsg =  Client.clientstate.commandmessage
  end if

  msgbox "Subject-Plaintext: " & oMsg.subject.plaintext & vbcrlf &_
  "Subject-RTF: " & oMsg.subject.RTF

End Sub

Hope this helps.
