Edit Binary Data Dialog Box

Use this dialog box to edit binary data.

Note: This dialog is used when binary value representation is Default. For a binary value represented as Unicode or ANSI string the Edit Multiline String dialog box is displayed; for a binary value represented as file reference the standard Open File dialog box is displayed.

This dialog box does not support entering of RRTs.

When this dialog box opens, the value is converted from its string representation. If the string is ill-formed (or contains RRTs) all non-hexadecimal characters are removed. Then the following grouping settings are applied to the value:

Option Description
Group by Specify group size (in bytes). This number is the same for all binary values.
Break lines Specify row length (in groups). This number is the same for all binary values.
Format now This button performs re-grouping of the text according to the currently specified grouping settings (Group by and Break lines).
Load This button allows loading of the binary value from a file.
Save This button allows saving of the binary value to a file.
Default value This text box displays the default value for the field (if it is configured in the FileNet P8 Content Engine Object Store). Click the Set button to copy this value into the value edit box.
Maximum length This text box displays the maximum length for the field (if it is configured in the FileNet P8 Content Engine Object Store).
Current length This text box displays the current length of the field. This value is calculated for the valid hexadecimal characters only.

When you click OK, the value is converted to its string representation (non-hexadecimal characters are removed and the value is padded with 0 character to the byte bound if necessary).
