This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I have defined a textbox in JSP as follows.
<html:text property="test" size="25" />
This gives me a textbox of visbile length 20 characters in upper case and 27 characters in lowercase in firefox.
By visible - I mean the total number of characters the user can see in the textbox without scrolling.
The lengths are different in IE.
Is there a way I can specify the textbox to show only 25 characters irrespective of whether it is upper / lower case or IE/firefox.
The "size" attribute controls visual size; while "maxlength" controls the number of characters. If you want to control the size absolutely you're better off doing it in em/pixels/etc. to make it cross-browser.
Further discussion regarding input element sizing belongs in the HTML forum, as it doesn't really have anything to do with Struts.
