i have an textarea with maxlength(text).
in an ideal world the user is typing the text directly into this field, if he is one char over maxlength the maxlengthtext is displayed, so far so good.
But most of my users paste text in to this field. If the text is over maxlength, the user sees the error, but doesnt know how many chars he is over the limit.
I think the easiest way would be to display the current and allowed length in the error message.
How could this be achieved ?
Any help would be much appreciated.
