Is there a way to specify a maximum number of characters in a text field in the CMS? I can't imagine that no one has thought of this! I am looking for the equivalent to the "maxlength" HTML input attribute.

The $maxLength variable can be passed when you set up the TextField:
$name = 'Word',
$title = 'Short Word',
$value = $myPage->Word,
$maxLength = 4;
You can also check out the docs for more info:
Hope that helps!

Thanks so much for your reply, but it's not working for me. I am still able to type in as many characters as I want, and it publishes successfully. Here's my code:
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", new TextAreaField('ProjectChallenge', 'The Challenge', '' , 25), 'Content');
What's wrong with this picture??

The code you're showing is asking for a TextAreaField. Try again with a TextField...
Let me know how that works out for you!

That works, yeah, thanks! Sure wish you could use that for a TextAreaField, though....
