Been patiently waiting for an update to the Text Input component to include a character limiter. As a text based (short form) content creation platform, I desperately need it and have had to implement clunky Sheets formulas truncating text over a certain limit and weird warning messages on content pages only viewable after they’ve posted, alerting them that they need to re-edit. Last winter, I mentioned it here. And it’s still odd to me that it wouldn’t be an option, given that it’s a standard feature across forms all over the internet, has been part of HTML since it’s earliest days, and would provide developers with a way to cut down on the amount of content being stored in their sheets (which is important given Sheets’ limitations on number of rows/amount of content).
And then I noticed a similar limiter introduced on the number input component, and was thinking… “really? And still no limiter on Text Component?” I can’t believe I’m actually considering building a form on my own website accessible through Webview for the sole purpose of having a proper character limiter. @david, @Mark, @JackVaughan is this anywhere in the near-term pipeline? I make random feature requests here all the time, but if I could press a button and have any of them right now It would be this one in a heartbeat !
(and I‘m mostly speaking up about this cause it’s been so long since I last mentioned it and because I’ve been asked in the past how you can make Glide better or what you could build to help us with our current apps?)
