HTML Forms: Specifying Maximum Text Typed within an Input Box

You can specify a maximum amount of text that should be typed within a form input box.

The INPUT tag is used to create input fields within a web page form.

You can specify
the amount of text that may be typed into an input box by including the MAXLENGTH attribute within your HTML form code.

However, when specifying the MAXLENGTH value, make sure you provide your visitors with enough space to type in the necessary information.

In the following HTML form example, the MAXLENGTH value specifies that your visitors may type in 40 characters within this particular input box.

<INPUT type="text" SIZE="10" MAXLENGTH="40">

By using the maxlength attribute within your web page forms, you can specify exactly how much text you want within your form. Use it to your advantage.
