File Dialog Express VI default name truncated

Solved!

Hi,  I have a VI with File Dialog Express.vi and when I wire a default name with a lot of characters in it  only the last characters are displayed.

 

I don't see it mentioned in the LabVIEW 2013 sp 1 (version I have) bug list.

 

I am running windows 7 on a 64 bit machine.

 

I see mention of it in other posts but none saying they are trying to fix it.

 

I have attached an example with the problem.

 

Thanks for any explanations

I don't think there is a fix.

 

It is actually a problem with the Windows dialog box.

Thanks RavensFan,

 

Sorry for not finding that post in my searches.  Ok,  I'll just tell the customer that it's a Mircosoft bug.  They will be able to live with it.

 

Thanks again
