    Truncating Text Field In CMS View of DOM Link to this post

    Hello,

    I'd like to reduce the number of characters of a text field as displayed in the CMS view of the DOM, as the rows are getting ridiculously large in proportion to the overall view!

    I managed to implement this kind of thing for an image field:

    public function getDOMThumbnail()
    {
    return $this->Image()->CroppedImage(150,150);
    }

    Where 'DOMThumbnail' is placed in the DOM array. But can find no similar example of how to reduce a text field, in this case its an HTMLtext field, nor have any of my attempts/experiments from reading through the api docs really helped much either in solving the problem. Seems like it should be pretty simple really?!

    Thanks
    ~ Sean
