#346 closed Bug (Fixed)

Remove the FileOpenDialog/FileSaveDialog filter length limit

Reported by: anonymous Owned by:
Milestone: Future Release Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


There appears to be a 260-character limit for the filter string. If the string is any longer than this, AutoIt spits an error at the user stating that the filter is invalid (even though it obviously isn't). This limitation seems completely artificial, so I think it should be removed (or at least increased).

If not, then some remark definitely needs to be made in the help file so that the limit is clear to the user. Otherwise, anyone who runs into the limit and gets the error message might end up wasting as much time as I did trying to figure out where/why the valid filter string was considered to be invalid.
