column field length < database field??

I have a datawindow in which I have a column field.
in the column field the length that I have fixed only fit 40
The database field length is 50 char.

The question is...What property/ies Do I have to set for I
could write 50 chars although they weren't seen altogether
in the datawindow column field?

Thanks in advance

    Export the DW into it's "source" code. Then change the column length to
50 and re-import the source code!

One way to synchronize the datawindow column buffer size and the
database column size is to go to the datawindow SQL painter, use the
mouse to *slightly* move one of the selected columns (let it snap back
into place) to trigger "the SQL has changed" flag, go back to the
datawindow painter saving the SQL "changes", and review the datawindow
column specifications to see if buffer size has changed.

asp:uploadFile bind database field to text field
I'm sure this is REALLY simple, but I can't seem to figure it out.  I have a CMS for a client, and they can upload images to the server.  When creating new records, this feature works like a charm.  However, when they go to edit a record, the uploadFile text box doesn't fill with the data already contained in the database for that file upload.  Is there some way to bind text to the text box for asp:uploadFile? I don't think it is possible.  If you check the SDK most of the fileupload's properties are readonly (including filename). I notice that when I bind to the...

Add non database field to a tclientdataset (but load fields from DB)
Hi, I've encountered a technical issue while building a business framework based upon dbx : For some business objects I need some extra read/write fields in the clientdataset that models them. Technically, I have a classic tclientdataset connected to tdatasetprovider connected to tsqldataset. When I define myfields at runtime I get an error when opening the clientdataset because of unknown fields for the non-database fields ( I would have hoped they would simply get null values ). I tried many different things but can't get it to work. My current workaround is to select extra d...
