      When editing text type customfields, the settings form does not correctly display the setting's state.

      Steps to replicate (requires a test course created)

      1. Login as Admin
      2. Navigate to Site administration > Courses > Course custom fields
      3. Add a new category (default name should be Other fields)
      4. Click add a new custom field and select Short Text from the drop down
      5. In the settings form add a name and shortname for the field and under the subsection Short text field settings set the Maximum number of characters to 20
      6. Save the form
      7. Click on the Edit icon for the field you created to go back into settings
      8. The Maximum number of characters displays the default value of 1333, not the value you set of 20
      9. Navigate to the Edit settings test course and under the subsection of the category name you created (default is Other fields) change the value of your custom field to a string of length greater than 20 characters (but less than 1333)
      10. Try to save the settings, you should get an error message on the field displaying "The maximum number of characters allowed in this field is 20."

      I have also checked the DB, clearly the value is saved, but the settings form for the custom field does not correctly display the set value.
