I'm working with HATS as a Web service.
The <prompt> action has a len parameter to indicate the length of the data. The VME sets this value to what appears to be the width of the screen, normally 80, for every prompt even though when I select the area of the screen in which to insert the prompt is virtually less than the maximum, example 8 characters. I can change that value to what the field length is and when I create the Integration object I can see that the length is properly set in the Object code. However, when the service (WSDL) is created there is no specification present for the length of the field.
First, is this working as designed?
Second, how does this length parameter work? for example if the prompt specifies a length of 10 and the user provides a string of 15, what is entered into the presentation space?
