enumeration string cut in editor presentation

Vivek Pandey (4321436) | asked Mar 10 '15, 4:12 a.m.

We are using RTC 4.0.6.
However previously, when we were using RTC, we had an attribtue  of type 'Large string'.

This attribute is being used as multi-select check list i.e. list of enumeration values , where multiple values can be selected.

However, we notice now that, in the editor presentation of the eclipse client, the strings are not visible in full i.e. when we open the work-items, it only displays the part of the string.

However, we are able to see the full string while using the web browser.

Is there any limit of no# of characters displayed in the enumeration list ?

The presentation that was used to handle the Enumeration Multi Select in 2.x and 3.x has been dropped from support in 4.x. Please see or for a way to migrate the data to a real EnumerationList attribute. This removes the problem of displaying the values as well.

 thanks ralph !

but do you know what was the limit earlier? 
we have huge number of workitems which is making it difficult to replace attribute easily.

The editor presentation is gone. You can't use multiselect any more. You would have to edit this as strings - manually. From my perspective you have to migrate.

The String editor presentation has attributes to select how many lines you want to show as far as I know.
