Good afternoon :-)

RadTextBox

Is it possible to set the "MaxLength" to the size of SQL 2005 DB field "automagicly" :-)
(RadTextBox, RadMaskedTextBox, RadNumericTextBox...)

Ex.:
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Locale](
    [idLocale] [nchar](10) NOT NULL,
    [Description] [nvarchar](50) NULL,
 CONSTRAINT [PK_Locale] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED

                        <telerik:RadTextBox ID="Description" Text='<%# Bind("Description") %>' Runat="server" Skin="WebBlue" 
                            Width="200px"  ReadOnly="true" MaxLength="50"
                        </telerik:RadTextBox> 
 

I'd like to remove the MaxLength="50" properties or that we don't need to explicitly define it.

Thanks!

Hi Alexandre,

Unfortunately I do not think that setting the MaxLength for one of our RadInput controls automatically when binding it to a source column with a specified length is possible. You will need to specify the length either declaratively or programmatically in code.

If you find a way to do that for standard MS TextBox control, I suppose it will be applicable for each of our RadInputs as well.

By the way, I found this resource which elaborates how this can be done in Silverlight.

Kind regards,
