How To Resolve Field Length Warning


Hi everyone,

We've probably all seen this warning at some point:

"Please ensure that the value doesn’t exceed XX characters, otherwise it will be cut off at runtime."

The "XX" is dependent on the field being populated (usually 8, 10, 40, etc.)

In the past, I've ignored it because i make sure the length isn't exceed.

However, it appears that, as of the 1702 upgrade, you can no longer activate ABSL scripts where this is violated for ID-type fields.

What is the correct way to actually resolve the issue? Even if i manually define the data type with an intermediate variable (instead of attempting to set the instance element value directly) i still get the warning when i set the value of the variable and it still prevents activation.
