Business value

The page inspector is a useful tool to investigate page properties, fields, and data. Until now, it hasn't been possible to see the length of fields of type text or code. This information is now added to help developers understand limits on field length, both when the field is used in a page object and when it's used in web services.

Feature details

The browser client has a pane for inspecting pages. In this pane, the list of fields on the selected page now displays the length of text fields. This information is shown as a decoration for each field, such as Text[x] or Code[x], where x is the length of the field.
