IBPL Fields remove the limit of 100 characters to the "Item Identifier"

IBPL Fields remove the limit of 100 characters to the "Item Identifier"

When creating an IBPL field, there is a undocumented limit of 100 characters to the "Item Identifier" parameter.

Every string that exceeds the limit is shown as tailing dots ("..."), starting at the 97th character.

 

This might be OK for "static" picklist entries, but it is definitely too small for most of their use cases, where e.g. the PROJECT field is part of the "Item Identifier"

 

Especially when using a multi valued IBPL field, the rendered "MKS custom" combobox has a maximum width, that leads to a really ugly gui.

You get a combobox that does no use all space offered by the presentation template and therefore you have to scroll the list entries horizontally, and still it cannot show the entire content. This is really anoying

 

To make things even worse, the tooltips that come with the IBPL field have the same size limits as the rendered combobox, so basically the tooltips are worthless.

This applies for the MKS client gui and the web interface as well.

 

So the requested Improvement would be:

 

- remove the size limit for the Item Identifier aka PickList entry

 

- remove the maximum width for the rendered "MKS custom" combobox

 

- ensure the tooltips always show the complete content
