AsyncGetToString() 65536 character limitation?

I read another conversation on the forums from 2013 that said this limitation is not actually true. It's there any reason it's still listed in the docs? And is there any limit on the length of a string?

Thanks

That limitation doesn't exist in modern firmware, thanks for point it out. The documentation will be updated.

However, my advice is to keep the data processing within "reasonable" limits to avoid out of memory issues or performance issues, particularly on lower end platforms, and to respect the user's network bandwidth. Smiley Very Happy
