width of StringEdit control

hi all, I have a field in table whose edt is of 1000 char, when i drag this field on the form , this conrtrol comes very big in size . pls suggest me to restrict its diplay size to 5o char in the form. thanks


You should specify the field size directly in your form, not in the form datasource, in the form design



thanks for reply i had tried it but it was not working , but i got the solution , i set the display length of the control of the form and now it is working.
