Default value

The "Default value" parameter makes it possible to set a default text. When the parameter is used and a new object is created, the contents of the attribute using this datatype will be preset to the given text. In the example above, the "Summary" attribute of new objects will be set to "The summary has not yet been added.".

Max string length

The "Max string length" parameter makes it possible to control the maximum number of characters that the input interface should allow. By default, this parameter is empty - which means that the system will allow the maximum number of characters (255). In the example above, the parameter is set to 64. This means that the input interface will not allow the storage of strings that exceed 64 characters.
