There is a limit of 240 characters per line in the Tree View pane. Only the tree view is truncated, not the data itself. It should be completely visible in the Packet Byte pane -- also as a hex dump.

Also tshark will print the complete field when using the options -T fields -e <field name here>

How can I display hex array? FT_STRING?

For example tshark -r file.pcap -Tfields -e tcp.payload -Y tcp outputs the tcp payload as a hexdump.

tcp.payload is defined as field_type FT_BYTES.
