Hi All !

Re : 'Textarea' - 'Character Count'

Just realized I have a problem with field type 'textarea' & 'character count' - this feature used to work but now does't anymore. Problem effects all 'textarea' fields with 'character counting' on a couple of websites - that are all now running 'Community Build' (Plus a range of other extensions).

Only ref. I can find is in 'components/com_form2content/js/f2c_frmval.js' which has function 'function F2C_limitTextArea(field, countfield, maxlimit)'.

When typical 'textarea' field is rendered, I see the following code :

<textarea name="t1508" id="t1508" style="width:100% !important;" onkeydown="F2C_limitTextArea(this.form.t1508,this.form.t1508remLen,44);" onkeyup="F2C_limitTextArea(this.form.t1508,this.form.t1508remLen,44);" class="" aria-invalid="false"></textarea>

Then in the 'character remaining' box I'm seeing the code :

<input readonly="" type="text" name="t1509remLen" size="6" maxlength="6" value="100" class="" aria-invalid="false">

Somewhere, something is messing up / conflicting with the character counter - any ideas on how to fix ?

Hi Paulzero,

We haven't (yet) have any other reports on the counter not working.
Since it used to work it might be worth seeing if you can narrow it down by:
- Using native templates
- Switching off any overrides
- Using latest versions (please add your versions next time)
- Switch off extensions until the counter does work...this is assuming there is a conflict.

Are there any JS errors? Does it work in the back-end?

Please read the F2C documentation before asking questions! Thank you if you've done so ;)
