Hi...
How would i do to limit the input for a textfield?
For example, i used the constructor:
TextField tf = new TextField(10);
still it doesn't limit the input(let say 10 characters)??
thanks!

This may not be exactly what you want, but if you happen to use Swing instead of AWT, there's javax.swing.InputVerifier that can handle this sort of validation.
