Customer defined a  property with Max length 10. Later the max length condition was removed from the property definition. However the data entry was still restricted to 10 characters on the screen.

Error Messages

Not applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1.Define a property with max length of 10
2. Include in section and verify that the max length is honored.
3. Remove the max length condition from the property
4. Run the section and notice lenght of the peorpty still restricted to 10.

Root Cause

Since the section in which the property was included was generated when the max length attribute was set, even though the property defintion wsa changed , the section still had the old markup in its source.


Resave the section referencing the property so that the Section HTML is generated again. This will remove the max length attribute that is attached to the property.
