I’m going to bring this one up again, because I think it can be helpful in many cases.
If there is a large set of dynamic data from an external source, it would be nice for the text asset to have a character limit, and also a property to add “…” if the character limit is exceeded.
This would allow a ‘summary’ of the data. A classic example of this is if you want to assign people’s names to a set of buttons that will bring up a full record of data, you may only have a limited space available on the buttons. The ability to cut them off would be nice. Currently the closes thing is to ‘extract’ a chunk of text, then bind that to another text item and add “…”, All items in that case will have the “…”, which doesn’t make a lot of sense.
- I need this too!
- Nope, don’t need
