I note that the threads have a character count above the reply box; I have recently been completing a form on line and it has the facility to count-down the remaining character linit so one knows when one has reached the end of allowed space; just wondered if that facility is possible to incorporate on here?
There was a posting from adie1972(I think)that was alerting us to a change in the word count to a character count,and if you over did it there's a java popup telling you so.I have rarely managed to exceed the word count,even though I am by nature a very long-winded poster(on occasion)and the post from adie vanished shortly after I had responded to it.The post was in Speakers Corner. ;-)
Does that mean the java popup that was posted by Adie doesn't exist?
I usually draft any long posts in Word prior to posting,then I can spellcheck,word count,etc as I once used IE to draft a very long response only to get an error posting requiring my retyping the whole lot afresh.
thanks for the replies (none of which I got a notification about either); I found the form I recently completed on line very useful with its character count-down, so I knew when I was reaching my limit on posting or how much more I could add to each section without running out of space;
I was only asking for clarification as the java popup could be construed as a character counter(albeit a very basic one) and your post could also be construed to mean there is no such facility which contradicts the missing post from Adie. ;-)
I'm certainly not going to type a very long (4500 character plus)post to find out if there is/isn't a popup. ;-)
