Nintex Forms Limit 255 Characters

Hello, 

In Nintex Forms, if you have a textbox or hyperlink control on a form, is there a way to only limit 255 maximum characters to be entered into the textbox or hyperlink control by the user?   Possibly through JavaScript?   Any help on this would be appreciated.   

The issue I am having is SharePoint only allows 255 characters to be stored in a Hyperlink column in a list.   

Thanks,

Shannon

Hey Shannon, take a look at this post to see if the answers provided help  

You can either use regex or javascript for this with the link field. As for the text field we have min and max values you can set.

Hello Eric,

The regex is not available for the Hyperlink control.  Could I use the Custom Validation and use JavaScript Substring to extract the first 255 characters from the entry in the Hyperlink URL?

Yes that would be a possible solution for the Hyperlink field. Let me know if that works.
