Prior to version 20.2, string variables with more than 4048 characters could not be handled in script tasks. VidiFlow now provides special script task functions for reading the content from such variables, and writing more than 4048 characters into string variables.
In practice, strings might have large content, e.g. when a Read File Content task was used which creates such a string as output.
In order to read the content of a string with more than 4048 characters ("long string" called in the following), you can now use the function
For writing long string into another string variable you can use
Read long string into a string variable
var data = com.s4m.dmm.platform.utility.VpmsStringVariableUtil.toString(execution.getVariable("longString"));
Create a long string variable
var data = com.s4m.dmm.platform.utility.VpmsStringVariableUtil.createVpmsLongString("longString");
