Hi all,

Is there a built in way to stop a user from entering more than the maxLength in a Ext.form.TextArea?

The built-in validation shows the red outline when it goes over the set maxLength, but it doesn't stop the user from typing more.

I haven't tried much to fix this as it isn't a high priority issue for the users yet, but it would be nice if I didn't have to plug in a validation function to every TextArea in the app to prevent entering > maxLength characters. I tried the vtypes, and they don't work for this, though the email vtype was a great time saver for email validation. Hopefully I'm just doing something wrong.

I'm using 2.0 Stable in IE 7.
