Hello everyone!

We would like to increase the limit of input characters available for a field, for example, in the field "Work summary", from Project Managment / Tasks, is only limited to 128 characters, so how or where we could increase this limit?

Thanks!

Well the only reference I can find is this from the project.py file, but im not sure where to increase the size or where is the "osv" from where is importing fields.

from osv import fields, osvclass project_task_work(osv.osv):
_inherit = 'project.task.work'
_columns = {
            'name': fields.text('Work summary'),  
            } project_task_work()

Thanks!

The size is being increased by using 'text' field (which has no length limit) over a 'char'. See here: http://doc.openerp.com/trunk/developers/server/03_module_dev_02/#type-of-fields.

Great thanks for your answer, i guess the best would be to create a module that changes the default state, right? - Thanks!

Try the below field...

A text field with no limit in length.

Syntax:

fields.text('Field Name' [, Optional Parameters])
