DataGridViewTextBoxColumn.MaxInputLength Property

Definition

Gets or sets the maximum number of characters that can be entered into the text box.

public:
 property int MaxInputLength { int get(); void set(int value); };
public int MaxInputLength { get; set; }
member this.MaxInputLength : int with get, set
Public Property MaxInputLength As Integer

Property Value

Int32

The maximum number of characters that can be entered into the text box; the default value is 32767.

Exceptions

The value of the CellTemplate property is null.

Remarks

The MaxInputLength property does not affect the length of text entered programmatically through the cell's value or through cell formatting. It affects only what the user can input and edit.

Getting or setting this property gets or sets the MaxInputLength property of the object returned by the CellTemplate property. Setting this property also sets the MaxInputLength property of every cell in the column. To override the specified value for individual cells, set the cell values after you set the column value.
