text object size limits / capabilities

I would like to put a very long string value into a special text property in my formatting pane.

 

This property is defined as an object in capabilities.json

 

It displays in the UI with a red outline.  Is there a limit to the size of a text input?  How do you recommend handling long text inputs?

 

export interface ValueTypeDescriptor {
    text?: boolean;
    numeric?: boolean;
    integer?: boolean;
    bool?: boolean;
}

Re: text object size limits / capabilities

Hi,

 

Regarding the following topic, UI limit is 250 characters, but programmatically you can store unlimited amount of data.
