Understand Max Characters for Fields | Zoho Creator Help

Max characters

Understand setting maximum number of allowed characters in form fields

Applicable to the following fields:  Emailsingle line, radio, and drop down.

This property defines the maximum number of characters that your users will be allowed to enter in a field. The maximum value that you can set for this property is 255. Refer to this page to learn how to set max characters.

Maximum character length validation will be implemented strictly for all your form fields if a record is added via Deluge, API, or email input. This validation ensures that all the records added via various inputs undergo a thorough check for their field characters to ensure they're on par with the predefined character limits that you set, thereby minimizing error handling. 

For example, when you set the Max Characters property for a single line field on your form to 50, the below given will be the user experience on your form,

  • When a user accesses it from a web browser:
    • A user will be able to type up to 50 characters in the field's input area
    • If a user copies an input that has more than 50 characters, and pastes it in the field's input area, only the first 50 characters of that input will be pasted
  • When a user accesses it from a phone or tablet:
    • A user will be able to type up to 50 characters in the field's input area
    • If a user copies an input that has more than 50 characters, they won't be able to paste it. Copy-pasting will work only when the number of characters in the copied input does not exceed the Max Characters value (which is 50 in this case).
