Truncate File Name?



In datapage > tabular report > results page...


for the file datatype, is it possible to modify the layout to truncate at x characters?  I know this is possible for text or url, but it would be nice to do the same for long file names.


maybe is it possible to hyperlink to a filetype field in an html block?

Thanks for your response, but I prefer not to use a static file display name.


I had a play, & came up with this html block.  I would be interested to know if it can be done in a more concise or 'correct' way.




var str1 = '[@field:SC_uploadCustomerContract]';
if(str1.length > 36) {
    str1 = str1.substring(4,36)+"...";
document.write("<a href='[@field:SC_uploadCustomerContract/]'>"+str1+"</a>");
