Overview

Bootstrap Maxlength is a visual feedback indicator for the maxlength attribute. For more info please visit the plugin's Homeor Github Repo.

Usage

Bootstrap Maxlength's Javascript files are bundled in the global plugin bundles and globally included in all pages. However, the maxlength functionality requires a manual Javascript initialization.
<script src="assets/plugins/global/plugins.bundle.js"></script>

Basic Example

Basic example of a simple input with the maxlengthHTML attribute to control the total number of characters allowed.
The badge will show up by default when the remaining chars are 10 or less
$('#kt_docs_maxlength_basic').maxlength({
    warningClass: "badge badge-warning",
    limitReachedClass: "badge badge-success"
});
<label class="form-label">Basic example</label>
<input type="text" class="form-control" id="kt_docs_maxlength_basic" maxlength="10" />
<span class="fs-6 text-muted">The badge will show up by default when the remaining chars are 3 or less</span>

Threshold

    warningClass: "badge badge-primary",
    limitReachedClass: "badge badge-success"
});
