    Can you have a set number of characters option when you use the text box.

    Asked by groberto on January 30, 2013 at 10:26 AM

    I have set up a form for a client that includes a text box where the individual can have additional comments. The box title is "Delivery Information".They asked me if there is a way to limit the number of characters so the comments would not be so long.


    Also, do you have the ability to add a drop down form, that is, if there is more info needed like a second address, the person can click the down arrow and the drop down box will reveal more spaces to fill in the second address.

    Hi there,


    That form has the fields that appear according to the choice of the user.

    You can clone it and use it if you wish.

    I placed conditional logic to accomplish this.  Simple Hide and Show according to choices.


    As per the limitting of the data received by the user, this is possible.  Here are some images to help you with that:

    Let us know if that helps!
