    Is there a character counter function?

    Asked by maleimage on September 05, 2012 at 01:11 PM

    thank you for creating jot form.  it makes me look like I know

    what i'm doing.  Is there a counter that can be added to text

    fields so a person knows how many characters they have

    typed?  Paul

    Yes, indeed, we have that. Select the textarea field on the form builder, and then click on Entry Level button on the toolbar, and enter a number. This will limit the characters on the textare and it will show the number of characters written while the user is typing.

    Thank you Aytekin,  You make me wish I had skipped a few of my

    college courses like linoleum block printing and calligraphy and

    enrolled in a few computer science classes instead.  Also I am

    not from Male Image,  but am designing that website.
