Description

"Message: User: pa entered invalid input while trying to add a new entry. Text length must not be greater than 5000 chars. "

and so my carefully-crafted e-log message disappears into the ether, and I can't get it back. There has to be a more graceful failure mode than throwing away the content...

History

#1 Updated by Kyle Hazelwood about 5 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Assigned
  • Priority changed from Normal to Low

Believe it or not, this is only the second time this limit has ever been reached. I agree that it fails poorly, but after your extremely ugly BPM gain changes entry from earlier today.... I don't feel so bad!

I'll try to validate it before submission.

#2 Updated by Kyle Hazelwood almost 3 years ago

  • Category set to Client
  • Status changed from Assigned to Closed
  • Target version set to Version 1.0

All form submissions are now validated before submit, including for text length. Text length has also been increased to 10000 chars. Also, form submission is sent via ajax so if somehow the validation fails to see the problem and error appears but the form is not destroyed allowing modificiations.
