  • 1.  SB+ 5.5.4 Auto Extend Field Length

    Posted 06-10-2022 15:26
    I have a customer that wants to leave Auto-Extend Field Length (from /USER.FLAGS) set to "N" so that their users can't type beyond the size of the input.  However, now they want to dip a credit card and the encrypted value returned from the chip reader is a few hundred bytes long, far too long for a single input.  Is there a way to enable the extended field length on just one prompt?

    In character mode, doing a DATA "@12" in the process before on the prompt does the trick nicely.  However, that doesn't work on GUI.  Hitting Ctrl-End before the card is dipped works to extend the field length but the customer (understandably) doesn't want their users to have to press Ctrl-End before every dip.  Is there anything that can be set to enable the extended field length automatically but only on a single prompt?
