HTML textarea maxlength is an awesome way to store and process text data that you may never use. The biggest issue with text-attached text is that you have to have a minimum of 100 characters, and you have to have a maximum of 100 characters. If you have a large text-attached text that is too long, this will cause your screen to spin and your text will overflow.
If you have a large text-attached text that is too long, this will cause your screen to spin and your text will overflow. The minimum is 100 characters, but if you really need more than that, you’ll need to set it to a larger minimum of 1024 characters.
The maxlength attribute specifies the length of the content that is displayed in your web page. Usually, this is used to control the size of a textarea in a web page. However, it also allows you to set the maximum amount of characters that you can insert in a textarea. A textarea with a maxlength of 100 is usually fine.
The maxlength attribute lets you set certain character limits for text areas. In our case, the maxlength attribute is telling our textarea to display only 100 characters.
The maxlength attribute is useful especially when displaying long text on a web page. When setting this attribute, remember to make sure that you don’t exceed the maxlength attribute limit. Using a maxlength of 300 might cause your browser to crash.
What happens when you use the maxlength attribute on a textarea is that it will allow you to increase the length of the text in that area. For example, if you type “I can’t be bothered to sit down for five minutes and write a letter” you would see the text “I cannot be bothered to sit down for five minutes and write a letter”.
I often see people use the maxlength attribute on a textarea and then get a message from their browser saying that it cannot have more than 300 characters, so they have to resize the textarea to 300 characters. Unfortunately, this is not a problem with browsers. Most browsers are optimized for the largest text area, so maxlength does not affect them at all. This might be a problem if you have a very popular blog/website that allows you to add lots of text.
The problem is that there is no way to know which browsers you are using, so you can’t control if your text is too long or not. The maxlength attribute should not be used at all on a textarea, as it can cause problems with Internet Explorer, and it’s not good for anyone.
You might have to create some sort of custom CSS, but it’s not very efficient.
