flash() doesn't display anything when message is too long

Reported by: pitrou Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.1b2
Component: webflash Version: 2.0b7
Severity: normal Keywords:


flash() doesn't display messages longer than 2500-3000 chars and doesn't raise an error either. It's probably due to some internal limitation somewhere (cookie size?) but it shouldn't fail silently to do its job. Whether it should raise an error or simply truncate the message, I have no opinion about :-)

(this is with 2.0b7)

  • Component changed from TurboGears to webflash
  • Milestone set to 2.1a1

The session is indeed stored by the cookie so there is a hardcoded top of 4KB, this is a bug in webflash as it should error if the string is this bug.
