I would like to limit the number of string that can be entered in the customer id field. In this case, i will only allow 8 characters since this is what the urly bird specification requires. ANy thoughts on how I can implement this one?
I'm sorry about the confusion. I am entering the customer id in the cell in the table. So i do not think Maskformatter will help me. So I am wondering if there is something in the cell that can limit the number of characters you can enter.
I have condensed Sun's TableFTFEditDemo into what is possibly the smallest bit of code that I can use to discuss this - it creates a simple table where the third column will only allow integers between 100 and 999 to be entered.
See how you go with this and/or see how you go with Sun's tutorials on the subject.
If in doubt, you can always come back and ask questions
