    MaxLength Property (TextCellType)
    In This Topic
    Gets or sets the maximum number of characters allowed in the text cell.
    Public Property MaxLength As Integer
    Dim instance As TextCellType
    Dim value As Integer
    instance.MaxLength = value
    value = instance.MaxLength
    public int MaxLength {get; set;}

    Property Value

    Integer number of characters

    This is the number of characters that can be typed, not the number that can be displayed. If you enter text by setting the Text property for a cell, this property does not limit those characters, only what can be typed by a user when in edit mode.

    This example sets the maximum character length for the cell.
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.TextCellType txt = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.TextCellType();
    txt.MaxLength = 25;
    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[0, 0].CellType = txt;
    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[0, 0].Text = "This is a text cell.";
    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Columns[0].Width = 200;
    Dim txt As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.TextCellType()
    txt.MaxLength = 25
    FpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(0, 0).CellType = txt
    FpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(0, 0).Text = "This is a text cell."
    FpSpread1.Sheets(0).Columns(0).Width = 200
