Unfortunately we currently do not have a function specific to counting text box characters. What we have is using the Max size option to limit them.
The screenshot above also shows an available widget, we have a character count widget that you can use but will show as a text area, here's the widget: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/character_counter.
I hope this helps.
Thanks for the Reply, looking Character Count Widget, can I use that to obtain the Number of Charactors?
Character Count = 500
Character Count - 500 = number of Charactors?
Unfortunately "Character Counter" widget cannot be used to display the number of character of input texts.
Hope this answers your query.
Do get back to us if you have any questions.
