TD-888: SalFmtFieldToStr and Long String

Post by Ren » 09 Jun 2010, 17:47

Hi, I'm having problems with SalFmtFieldToStr. I have a window handle pointing to a column of type Long String (hWndLSTR) and a Long String (lsMyString).

Code: Select all

! ---- This changes lsNewValue to correct data length (1302 characters)
SalGetWindowText ( hWndLSTR, lsNewValue, 2000 ) 
! ---- This does not (truncates to 899 characters)
SalFmtFieldToStr ( hWndLSTR, lsMyString, FALSE ) 
This (truncating >899 into 899) is obviously a problem. I'm wondering if this is a bug or somehow related to the data fields' settings. Funnily enough, when I use SalFmtStrToField (the reverse of this one), it works perfectly (ie no truncate)

I'm using Centura 4.2. Any help/ideas greatly appreciated.


//edit1: PS: It does not matter if the last boolean is FALSE or TRUE

Just click <--, then --> to see truncation.


//edit1: added field lengths so it's easier to see
