#115 closed enhancement (fixed)

Support larger Subject fields in Details view

Reported by: John Small Owned by: Gregg Young
Priority: minor Milestone: Release_3.7
Component: fm/2 base Version: 3.07
Keywords: Cc:


I use the option to have Subject EA's displayed in Details view and I use Subject EA's heavily as a way to see what the file is without having to rename it and, in the case of archives, without having to open the archive.

The current limit of 30 characters is a problem for me.

It would be nice if the field could be expanded.

Since I may very well be in the minority in the use of the Subject fields, perhaps the best enhancement would be to a) make the size user-selectable (up to some more useful maximum); and b) make the default size even smaller then 30 (so that memory might be saved for those who do not use and display Subject EA's).

The can be resolved when implementing the capacity enhancements. The CNRITEM structure limits the Subject field to a fixed 40 character buffer. This can be made varible sized. We probably need to have logic to avoid exceeding 64KB EA limit.

The tentative szSubject fix for variable length buffers appears to have fixed this.
