When using the ‘character limit’ setting (described here: How to set characters limit on field's input? | miniExtensions for Airtable ), the character limit appears in the field like this:
Is there a way to hide the characters remaining? This is because we want to limit very long submissions, but not have users feel like this is some kind of ‘target’ count.
@Adam For this use case, you could simply use Regex validation instead of the built-in character count function. Here’s how to set it up:
This regex will match any string that has at least 1 character and no more than 9 characters, effectively allowing inputs that are less than 10 characters long. I Asked ChatGPT to come up with this pattern, but you can change it to any limit you like.
And here’s how the form looks to the end user:
The error message will only show up when the user goes above the limit.
Let me know if this helps!
