jQuery Set Maxlength for Multiline Textbox in

Dec 19, 2013

Here I will explain how to set maxlength for multiline textbox in using
jQuery or set of maxlength for multiline textbox in jQuery.
In previous articles I explained
jQuery disable right click on images, jQuery expand textbox on focus , jQuery slideup slidedown slidetoggle example, jQuery fadein or fadeout example, jQuery create rounded corners for textbox, jQuery show time in webpage and many articles relating to JQuery. Now I will explain how to set maxlength for multiline textbox in using jQuery.

To implement this we need to write the code like as shown below

<html xmlns="">
<title>jQuery set maxlength for multiline textbox in</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="">
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
$('#txtdesc').keypress(function(e) {
var txt = $(this).val();
if (txt.length > 50) {
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<b>Enter Text:</b>
<asp:TextBox ID="txtdesc" TextMode="MultiLine" runat="server" ></asp:TextBox>
