How to limit the input length for a text label



  • Hi guys,

    Does anybody know of a way to set the maximum number of characters that can be inputted into a HISE label (set to editable)?

    I've searched the forum but can't seem to find anything on this.

    I'd imagine that I could achieve it using a timer somehow, but hoped that there would be a more elegant way.

    Please share if you have any ideas.

    Cheers,

    Lee



  • @LeeC If the label's callback is triggered when entering text you could check the string length and delete any additional characters the user tries to enter.



  • @d-healey I like your thinking.
    I don't think that label callbacks are triggered when text is entered, which is why I was thinking about using a timer.

    Also, have you got any thoughts on how to delete the the additional characters that exceed the MaxTextLength?



  • Callback is triggered when you hit enter (or you could trigger it manually, from a button for example).
