How to make LEN(n-m) dynamic?
Author: email@example.com (istiller)
We do have a textfield, 70 characters long, for names. Our customers do have differnt third party products (CRMs), each of them accept other name length.
Now we got the request to limit the input in out UnifAce application.
Okay, one can use the LFLD-trigger to check the length an reject the input if to long. But the user could input up to 70 characters without any warning but only when he/she leaves the field.
When using LEN(0-30), the user can only 30 characters, but this is fix at compile time. As a VAR and with different third party products this is not a solution for us.
Any other idea beside LFLD?
Or should I write a (never read/fulfilled) wish :-)
