Hi,
I am trying to display an error message of length over 400 characters in one of the forms. But the Alert message is displaying only 200 characters maximum, I tried to
1) Increase the alert text (al_text) size to 500 (SET_ALERT_PROPERTY('al_message', ALERT_MESSAGE_TEXT, al_text)) but its truncating the message after 200 characters.
2) Searched all the .pll files to check if the size is defined globally, but it was not defined anywhere.
Could someone please help me with this?

Thank you in advance.

Hello
Which is a value that can not be extended.
One solution is to simulate the alert using a canvas and a text field of the size you want.

regards

Hi Gustavo,
The value that cannot be extended is 'al_text' in SET_ALERT_PROPERTY('al_message', ALERT_MESSAGE_TEXT, al_text). My requirement is to display the error message and block the user from navigating further, in this case if I simulate the alert using a canvas, I think it fails.

Thank you.

Uhmm.
You can use a modal window for the canvas, so the user can not navigate outside the canvas in front of him.
It's just an idea.

You know - if you'd looked in the form builder help topic on the alert message property you'd have seen in there that's it max length is 200.
