Hi everyone,

I'm working through the tutorials and very much enjoying the experience...

Just wondering why there is a range for Text Length for text fields in the form tab page of the CMS ?

TIA - Dave Porter

I think it is supposed to provide a minimum/maximum length for the amount of text you are to enter into the field. Although, having tested this at demo.silverstripe.com, the minimum does not appear to be enforced, atleast for a single-row field. Haven't tested exhaustively.

Hayden Smith said it was created with that intention, so I've added a trac ticket to express its not working currently.

Anyone want to write a patch? :)
