How to extend the file name size showing on screen

I know there is a solved ticket for this solution, but in the newly upgraded version ( this solution does not work. I need to be able to change the file name size to at least 100 characters. Right now I think it is set at 47 characters. The previous solution was to search in the code for a '47' and then change that to 100. I tried doing this and could not find '47' anywhere. Any ideas?

Here is the OLD solution:

again, I tried this but I cannot find '47' in that file in the newest upgrade.

We may include an option for this in the final 4.0 version.

However there is a way to do this in the current version.

Please edit FileVista\FileVistaControl\scripts\filevista.js file and find this string:

nameColumn = grid.columns[1];

Just after this string, add this string to adjust the size of the name column:

nameColumn.size = 100;

The size is given in characters count.

Is the solution posted above still the way to increase filename characters seen?  Thank you!
