    Character counter

    Asked by pthimsen on November 03, 2014 at 04:35 PM

    I know how to limit text fields to a certain number of characters but is there a character counter also available so those populating the text field can see the character count as they are filling out this field?

    I think that the Character counter widget is what you're looking for. Please take a look at it here: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/character_counter and let us know if it works for you.

    Thank you.
