No error given when exceed max char. on a note [GreeK]

Postby Doug R. » Sun Feb 03, 2013 1:57 pm

I have a character mapping Fu, and apparently I hit the note character limit, because the last two locations didn't save and were lost. There should be an error message.

Even better idea is to disable "forward" button when limit is exceeded. Just like "say to all" when text area is empty.

But the forward button isn't dynamic, so it would have no idea if the limit is exceeded or not until you hit it. Or am I missing something?

"say to all" isn't dynamic too. :D
It can be done through javascript. Form validation is quite standard thing. Additional popup message with explanation can be displayed.

Just remember that IE treat a carriage return as two characters, and the rest of the browsers as one character, or if it was the other way around.

It's impossible to save notes which exceed 65000 characters (which worked in the past). It's probably because of server configuration.

Preview informs when a note is too long.
