Bug Report - Dictionary.getKey limits value size

Postby nonbiostudent » Sat Jun 30, 2012 11:22 am

I am using V2.1.8 of the Phidgets Python API. I was a bit surprised when sending large strings between a server and client application through a WebService Dictionary that the Python Dictionary.getKey() method clips strings to 1024 characters.

Can I suggest adding a max_size keyword argument to the getKey method to allow large strings to be retrieved if necessary? See attached patch file for my implementation.

Thanks!
