Use this procedure to add character counters to text fields. When you have a counter on a text field, the counter shows the length of the entered text while you type. You can also specify the number of the recommended characters count. When you enable this function, it reminds you for the recommended characters count. If you exceed it, the counter will turn red, but will not restrict you from entering or saving long values into the fields.
By default, the counters are enables for the following fields:
You can enable character counter on any field.
Following is an example of how to enable the character counter on the Title field of the Edit dialog of the News module:
If you click Content » News and choose to edit a news item you will see that the character counter is configured, based on the data you have provided.
NOTE: Most of the modules, like the News module, have different dialogs for the creating and edit functions. In order to keep the consistency, we recommend enabling the character counters for both NewsBackendInsert and NewsBackendEdit views.
