How to Set a Maximum Character Limit on an HTML Textarea?

Find out how you can set maximum character requirement on an HTML textarea

You can use the maxlength attribute (which is very well-supported across different browsers) on the HTML <textarea> element to limit the maximum number of characters that a user can enter. For example:

<textarea maxlength="10"></textarea>

This would limit the input in the <textarea> element to a maximum of 10 characters (as UTF-16 code units).

Please note that if no maxlength is set on the <textarea> element, or a non-positive integer value is set, then no maximum input is enforced.
