It would be very helpful if Datawindow computed fields supported the UseEllipsis property - in particular, to warn that a too-large computed value is truncated.  I notice this was asked for back in the old Sybase news group. 

Does anyone have a work around, or perhaps can suggest what I may have missed?

Hi Dan;

  Yes, ellipses on DW CC's would be great! I wish former PB versions had implemented that too.  As a workaround ... please use an SQL Computed Column, as follows:

SQL (example):

"contact"."first_name" || ', ' || "contact"."last_name"  cc_full_name


DW Painter:


 Please feel free to create a ticket on this shortcoming and we'll see if we can get Engineering to add it to their enhacement list.



Regards ... Chris

Thanks, Chris.  Can I ask you to remind me how to "create a ticket"?  Would this be using the "Submit a bug" link on the Appeon web site?  Thanks, Dan.
