In the field description, add this

<script type="text/javascript">

document.getElementById("customfield_xxxxxx").maxLength=50;

</script>

where
customfield_xxxxxx is the id of your
Text Field

When I try the code above nothing happens. Only difference is I'm checking a field length of 5.

I guess I'll try a Script Runner transition, but why doesn't the javascript fire?

If I put an alert in the javascript, an alert pops up on the screen right when I hit save. Why would that happen, I haven't entered and data yet!

Or simply add a validator using Script Runner, rather than doing it in javascript (which can break anytime, and it is just a client side validation)

Thanks!

But, how can i achieve that? I need complete guide to that.

Hi,

I have a similar requirement that, i have to set the width of the customefield(Number field). But, using the above javascript in the field description does not serve the purpose.

Please help with the same
