MaxLength Property (SuperEditBase)

FarPoint.Win Assembly > FarPoint.Win Namespace > SuperEditBase Class : MaxLength Property
Gets or sets the maximum number of characters that can be typed or pasted into the control.
Public Overridable Property MaxLength As Integer
Dim instance As SuperEditBase
Dim value As Integer
instance.MaxLength = value
value = instance.MaxLength
public virtual int MaxLength {get; set;}

Property Value

Integer maximum number of characters

When the user or code attempts to insert or provide more characters than the maximum length of the control, a UserError event occurs. To prevent validation until the control loses focus, set the UserEntry property to UserEntry.FreeFormat. With the UserEntry property set to FreeFormat, if the user or code inserts or provides more characters than the maximum length of the control, an InvalidData event occurs when the control loses focus.

Caution: If the control is bound to a database field that contains more characters than the limit specified by the MaxLength property, the data from the database is truncated in the control. If the value changes, the changed, possibly truncated, value is written to the database.

This property is available at run time only.
