Spry Validation - (maxChars)

Extra clarity needed

I'm not sure why the length validation has been removed from this page.

When I create the pages using the DataAssist: create pages under the manage pages tab, form validation and field settings, I have entered a value for Max Characters: 125. On completion of the page generation, I do not see any code reflecting the set Max Characters. Am I doing something wrong or is this perhaps a bug? See attached screenshot of my form validation and field settings.

From your previous advice, I do now see how I can set the max length setting for the input fields. The problem is for a textarea field in the properties Inspector does not allow me to enter a max length.

From what I see now, is that I would need to manually set the max length for each input field of the generated pages.

How would I apply any server validation to the page?

How would I apply the jQuery pattern for an element to restrict the number of characters?

Appreciate your clarity on this matter Jason.
