Textarea maxlength validating
The validation simply doesn't work as it should, as I'll explain.
Note that I say it doesn't work as it should--I'm not saying it never works.
I haven't tried much to fix this as it isn't a high priority issue for the users yet, but it would be nice if I didn't have to plug in a validation function to every Text Area in the app to prevent entering max Length characters. Thanks, Merk I am having the same problem with the max Length in IE. I'm not sure if this is a browser implementation decision or ext issue.
I tried the vtypes, and they don't work for this, though the email vtype was a great time saver for email validation. If you truely want to restrict the user from typing, you can always define a mask using mask Re. Is there a built in way to stop a user from entering more than the max Length in a The built-in validation shows the red outline when it goes over the set max Length, but it doesn't stop the user from typing more.
so user gets to know why the new keys are not appearing in the textarea.Here is Jquery to enforce maxlength for textarea when you add the attribute "maxlength". How do I adjust my code to handle multiple textarea(s) on the page?Currently if I add text to any textarea, they all countdown with the same value.It is normalized so that line breaks use "LF" (U 000A) characters. It is normalized so that line breaks use U 000D CARRIAGE RETURN "CRLF" (U 000A) character pairs, and in addition, if necessary given the element's wrap attribute, additional line breaks are inserted to wrap the text at the given width.
The element's API value is defined to be the element's raw value with the following transformation applied: When a textarea is mutable, its raw value should be editable by the user: the user agent should allow the user to edit, insert, and remove text, and to insert and remove line breaks in the form of "LF" (U 000A) characters.
However, it is highly unlikely that the reader who is expected to shortlist candidates on the bases on these questions is interested in your life story.
