Word Count

Is there a way to limit the word count from a group of text boxes. This would be combined word count from all the text boxes!

One way you can do this is to use the post values and get the number of words in each and store them into a variable adding to it for each text box and if its too high then forward back to the page that the form is on.

Great, how do I get the word count. Can I do this while the form is being filled out and stop them before they post?

There are quite a few scripts out on the web that would do word count for you on text boxes, but I haven't really implemented it before.

If you use the post values, you can count the number of spaces and add 1 to it for the word count.
