Do you always use the html maxlength attribute on input fields to limit number of characters to the length of the field in the table?
**Rule 1: ** Whenever you have a data entry page you should always use the html maxlength attribute to limit number of characters to the length of the field in the table (except for numbers).
Rule 2: Whenever you have a situation where you are using the HTML textarea (does not have the maxlength property)
Then you need to:
- add 2 properties to every data control eg. dataType="char" onkeyup="validateLength(this)"
