I would like to restrict the user to enter a minimum of 3 characters and a maximum of 8 characters in the 'UserID' text field (JTextField), is there any API for this in java. Can you suggest any solution ?
Thanks in advance.

Kindly reply back.

Here is a link to the Sun tutorial Go to the creating validated textfields section. In the example check out the insertString method. You will need to modify that to limit the entry.
