Hi, I'd like to limit the number of characters that are displayed in a ComplexTableField (in CMS) while keeping the underlying data in tact for display in the popup. Any thoughts?

One simple way to do is to create a function in your DataObject that returns the truncated text, then add the name of that function to the summary fields, like

static $summary_fields = array(
   'Name',
   'Title',
   'TruncatedCondent'
);

function TruncatedContent() {
   // return $this->Content, truncated in some way
}
