    What is the difference between size and max size

    Asked by lnpb on March 30, 2016 at 10:08 PM

    What is the difference between "Size" and "Max Size" They have nearly identical descriptions. I want to control the width of the field. Both reference the number of characters. 

     

    Thanks!

    You are right, the explanation is causes the confusion.=) Max Size function is maximum allowed number of characters that can be entered into the field by user. For example, when you create an ID field you can set max size as 11. At that situation, user can enter maximum 11 character to that field.

    Size is different from Max Size option. With the size option, you can change the width of your text box.
