I am wondering that how Navision addin support BigText. If we see the addin trigger in navision then we found that the parameter to OnControlAddin trigger is text with 1024 length but not the BogText. Also we cannpt change this parameter.

Can any body correct me if I am wrong?

    Yes, you cannot, but the control is bound to some field/expression which could be the bigtext and you can pass values in both ways. The trigger you mentioned than could work as an signaling of change in the bouond value...

    If you bind the control to a BigText field then the parameter of the OnControlAddin trigger switches to BigText as well. So you do not need to signal only, you can communicate backward using BigText as well. (However in your design consider performance: you might want to communicate only the data that was changed.)

    Or did you find some problem with the BigText support in the OnControlAddIn trigger?
