    I noticed that when reaching the configured Message Entry Limit, the user can continue to type even though the Limit line is highlighted in red, which I assume is to get the attention of the user to look at the entry limit value.

    Is there a way to

    (1) Prevent additional characters from being typed?  and /or . . .

    (2) Is there a way to enter a Error Message in the highighted area that alerts the user they have reached the maximum number of words?

    Hi,

    (1) - I'm afraid that it is not possible to prevent the user on keep typing when it reaches the word limit.

    (2) - It is possible by using a CSS trick in order to change the content of the error class, try by injecting this cutom css to your form:

    .form-textarea-limit-indicator-error:after {

    content: "\2190 Word Limit Error";

    }
