Using java:

• Obtaining one form property

If it were TC11.x,  you could set a naming rule (with regex to limit the character input) on any persistent property (TC enlarged the naming rule applicability on properties from TC 8.3 to TC9.x to TC 10.x to TC11)


I don't seem to recall if naming rules worked in TC 8.3: If they don't work, you could avoid customization by creating a custom name attribute (hide it from users), set the custom attribute to your desired character limit and then do a complexproperty (using custom attribute) on object_name field.

If it's available in TC 11 means, that's great. But regular expressions have limitations in TC.
