Restrict backoffice field length

0 Kudos


I would like to restrict the length of user input for a backoffice field. Is there a way to do this other than using a ValidateInterceptor / Jalo class?

I would like the user to be restricted to only enter 3 characters for a field (code). HTML equivalent below:

input type="text" name="code" maxlength="3"

There is no simple way to achieve exactly what you want. Yet you may always do one of below:

  • extend Default Text Editor, introduce such functionality and use it for code attribute

  • use validation interceptor

  • use built in Backoffice validation mechanism (please see this document and all subsequent documents for details)
