    We successfully set the limit of number of characters for a Text Area, but wondering if there is a way to show the number of characters or show the overage in red so that the user meet's the form guidelines. 

    Going to use this feature for an awards / publishing submission form!!

    Thanks in advance for your help or pointing us in the right direction!

    Yes. It is possible to count the characters of a text area field by using our Character Counter widget. You can show the characters in red as a warning message when the user about to reach the limit or so.

    Hope this information helps. Please let us know if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you!
