Column any long text such as Note fields and Text From Source fields are truncated at about 150 characters with an ellipsis …
This workaround will display the full text.
In the Column Expressions are composed from two technical features: Data References and Functions; they also often involve Operators to compare values. use the
=GetParagraph(%INDI.NOTE2%,1) function, because it does NOT truncate the text.
To allow for the possibility of multiple paragraphs, several such A ‘function’ is an expression which returns values based on computations. Typically, functions require data to be supplied to them as ‘parameters’. A function in Family Historian is similar to a ‘function’ as used in spreadsheet applications (such as MS can be joined together:
=Text( GetParagraph(%INDI.NOTE2%,1) . " " . GetParagraph(%INDI.NOTE2%,2) . " " . GetParagraph(%INDI.NOTE2%,3) )
Just substitute whatever Data Reference is needed for the long text field required.
This technique also works in Diagrams and Reports but is rarely needed because long text fields are usually displayed in full.
=GetLabelledText(%INDI.NOTE2%,"Label") function also does NOT truncate long text.
