    S40 max length for filename

    What is the maximum length for filenames in S40 devices?
    Or is there some max length for path+filename?

    Hi,

    This is taking "String" up to available memory space and same as path+ filename.
    Regards

    While in theory there is no limit for an URL, in practice it is almost certain that there is a limit. For example on Symbian devices the limit is 256 characters for the complete path+filename (if you ever plan running your code on Symbian devices, you may want to keep this limitation).
    Also when you are working with a memory card, that is likely formatted to FAT and thus limiting the length of a filename in 255 characters.
