In Sitecore 9, I'm constructing some forms using the form builder. When I add Single-line and Multiple-line fields, there seems to be a 256-character limit on the Label of those form elements. When you enter a stsring longer than that, it cuts it off.

Is there a way to override/increase this without utilizing a custom field?

You need to update the label from the Content Editor for this. If you are using Form Designer it will cut off the text. but if you will use the Content Editor for this it will work fine, because the Title field is single-line text field in Sitecore. All you need to navigate the field for which you want to update the label and then select the Title field, add your text and save the field- enter image description here

  • Thank you, Mahendra. That's weird that the Form Designer puts a limit like that, when it doesn't appear to need to.
