  1. Hello,

    i added an ASP.Net input text form in a page:

    <asp:TextBox ID="CV" Rows="15" runat="server" TextMode="MultiLine"
    Columns="66" ToolTip="Insert your CV" MaxLength="2000" />

    I wanted to set a limit of 2000 chars. I inserted MaxLength="2000" in my
    However i am receiving text with more than 5000 Chars. What am i doing

    Thank You,

    The MaxLength property is ignored when the TextMode is set to multiline.
    the reason being that TextMode="MultiLine" gets rendered as <textarea> which
    doesn't support a maxlength property. Your only choices are [a] implement
    some javascript to do it do it on the server.
