When I use the action 'TextEllipsis' from the SilkUIFramework I get less characters than I expect.

Using TextEllipsis("Audi A3 SB 1.4TFSI Ambiente PL+ Aut", 12) yields "Audi A3..." which is 10 characters long (2 chars short).

Similarly with longer strings, they are all 2 characters short. I think this is a bug. I expected to get a string of 12 not 10.

Using Java stack with platform version 9.1.603.0



Hello Laurens,

Thanks for reporting the issue, we will take a look and try to provide a fix for a next release.

Are you able to workaround the issue by setting up a different number?


Hi Dinis,

Yes I found a workaround so for me it's no longer a problem (made my own version of the function), but a fix in the new release would be nice. Thanks in advance!
