Maximum character or character counter

Maximum character or character counter


I want to limit the number of characters that can be inputted into the field with the text editor - like you can on an ordinary textarea. I've already added webassist's client validation with max. characters, but that only tells the user when they go to submit the form and doesn't tell them how many characters they've entered. I also tried adding a third party javascript character counter but it didn't work as it doesn't recognise the filed as a textarea.

Can anyone recommend a solution, either to stop the input after xx characters or add a character counter to the toolbar.

Thanks in advance, all suggestions welcome!
