Hi Guys,
Though it is a HTML question, but I placed this one here as there was nothing indipendent for HTML.
How can I restrict number of Characters user can type in the text boxes. As when I use size= "25" though the box becomes 25 char long but you can write as many chacters in that.

<input type="text" size="25" name=<%=CORP_NAME%> value = "<%=getCmpnyName() %>" ></h6>

Hi Neha,
Use 'maxlength=x' like this:
<input type="text" name="textfield" size="25" maxlength="20">
Bye,

HI Neha,
Try this
<INPUT type="text" name="foo" maxlength="8" size="8">

maxlength determines the size
