Does Matrix have a keyword or set of keywords that can be used to add a character counter to text fields? Or do we need to resort to setting up json/javacript functions? I’ve had a look through documentation and the forum but cannot find anything on character counters.
We’ve previously used simple jquery on asset builders. Nothing built in AFAIK. Would be an interesting HOWTO for Edit+ plugins - how to add some simple jquery or vanilla JS to do this.
There is no keyword for it as keywords typically never produce JS (you def need JS for this type of functionality).
I’d just try and use a simple JS solution like this one: https://stackoverflow.com/a/5371160
I will include some JS.
We’ve been happily using the second answer on that stackoverflow question (https://stackoverflow.com/a/11132964) for many years on asset builders.
Was able to get something working using your stack overflow suggestion.
