I have an other problem whit admin area..
in the right side of a standard page I see this feald:

1.Page name
2.Navigation label

I add an other field:'short description' (text filed)
Is it possible limit number of character to insert when I digit my text?
This is a short description so I must limit to 150 charactrers.
What can I write in my getCMSFields functions?
I use Silverstripe v.2.3.7
Can you help me please?

Hi bebabeba,

This is actually the 4th argument for a textfield:

new TextField('Name', 'Title', 'Value', $MaxLength = 150);
