    hi, there,

    I want the description meta field to accept long text, and i just modified the valueType of Libraries.Description item in metaFields section in web.config. Now, the thing is when i try to save long description, it keeps running into an error:

    Value for property ShortText is too long


    But it seems that the content has been saved successfully even the error comes out. I can see the saved content when I enter the edit page after clicking saving button. Anything i can do to fix this?

    thanks,

    James

    Hi James,

    I was unable to reproduce this with 3.6 sp2.

    Here is what I did:
    • Changed the metafield type
    • Created a new custom library
    • Uploaded a chm file
    • Copy-pasted a lorem ipsum text with 1024 words (ShortText limitation is 256 symbols)
    • Saved

    Let us know if we have missed something or you have followed different steps.


    All the best,

    Thanks, Dido.

    I deleted and recreated the library after the valueType changed. All things go smoothly now. Thanks again.
