    Do the same thing as you suggested to craig edmunds. There is no option within the textarea object, of course you could always truncate what the user enters(let them know first).

    Default What do you do about...

    ...a copy/paste with the mouse?<BR><BR>The best way I know of is to have a function that runs every quarter second or so and that checks the length of the text area and chops it back if it&#039;s too long.<BR><BR>Warning the user is optional, since hopefully he/she will notice that the text gets chopped back as soon as he/she hits a key or uses the mouse to add text.<BR><BR>
