Web parameter: recordListArrayDisplayStyle

Web parameters change the behavior of the web clients that connect to the web tier. For more information, see Web tier parameters.




This parameter defines how array fields are displayed in record lists (for example, To-Do queue lists, lists in the list pane of list/detail pages, and lists generated by clicking the Fill button), and it takes no effect on table objects (for example, tables in the detail pane of a list/detail page). The parameter can be set to one of the following values:

  • 1 (default): The original content length of each array column value is truncated to the value defined in the recordListArrayMaxChars parameter.
  • 2 (recommended): Array type columns are not displayed in record lists. This option is recommended because displaying array fields in record lists can have a negative impact on performance.
  • 3: Keep the original content length of each array column value in record lists. This is the old behavior when this parameter was not introduced.

Note The setting of this parameter has no effect on the Export to Text File functionality. When you export a record list to a text file, array fields are always exported with their original content.
