Dialog Box Properties questions

1.  Is there any way to limit the amount of characters that can be put in a textbox?
2.  If so, is there anyway to have it 'auto-tab' to the next field when the one prior to it is completed?

I'm guessing neither of these are possible as I have not found anything that even mentions it, but I figured I'd run it by y'all.  Thanks in advance!

What language are you using?

RE: Dialog Box Properties questions

I'm using the Attachmate Macro Editor so Extra! Basic.

RE: Dialog Box Properties questions

1. No, the best you can do is crop the field after the user leaves it
2. No, the value of the field is not updated until you leave it.  So if the value was empty when you entered the text box, the value won't be set until the text box loses focus.
