Max characters in a parameter value

Hi Chaps


We have a set of standard parameters for all our start parts in Pro-E (WF3 M240).


The current character limit for a string parameter value is 80, can anyone tell me, is there a config.pro setting where I could extend this limit to say 200?


I did try a search on here and Google with not much success...


As always thanks in advance...

If you look at the definitions for parameters in ProParamval.h, you will see that values are defined as type ProLine, which in turn is defined in ProSizeConst.h as a wchar_t type of length 81 (so, 80 plus a terminator). I don't think you're going to find a way around this.

Absolutely, I 2nd this answer.




Thanks for the input, looks like I may be a little screwed!


But I will have a go at Matt Ender's succestion of changing from a string-valued parameter to a note-valued parameter and see if this might work for us...
