    Is there a way to limit the characters in a text box within a Configurable List?

    Asked by ecmdi on February 10, 2017 at 12:03 PM

    I need to limit the number of letters a person enters in the description filled to 32. Is there a way to do that using this widget? If not, how do you suggest we do this? maybe another widget?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible restrict the number of characters of a text box in the Configurable List widget. However, you can limit the characters in a regular text box. Here's how:

    1. Select the Text Box field and then click the "Properties" icon.

    2. In the Properties, go to the "Options" tab and turn on the "Limit Entry". You can specify the number of characters you preferred.

    Hope that helps. Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you.
