Hi,

I was wondering how I can display long labels. There appears to be a size limit on the label (256 characters?), so I was wondering if there are ways around this limitation without creating multiple labels or using a memo field.

Thanks.

Paul

We've had this as well .. and to date we just use multiple labels.  It becomes even more difficult when formatting (italics, color) needs to change within the text or for the "books of text" (large amounts) we are sometimes asked to have on the screen.

There may be a better way, but my gut tells me it would involve a url or iframe.  (Just off the top of my head, so may be waaaay off for those who have a good solution.)

Personally I prefer to use a rule for long labels, but that's probably because we have a client script to do that.

Any way the attached admin form has some client scripts for setting the text for labels and rules.

The form uses a memo field for to set the text.

If the text will be relatively static, it is possible to set the text by simply passing in a string with the text which can include HTML.  Of course, you will need to modify the client function call when the text changes. i.e.

    SetTextOnRule('myrule', '<font color=lawngreen>my message</font>');
 
changes to

    SetTextOnRule('myrule', '<font color=aliceblue>my new message</font>');
