Text entry Component - wrong length for emojis

Hi - I have an app that asks a user to put in a single emoji to a form. I am using the text component with default values of 1 min and 1 max. However when I paste in an emoji using my laptop and on my phone, inserting a single emoji counts as 2 characters! not a show stopper - just annoying! Thanks!

I suspect this has to do with Unicode.

The name for this: :dizzy: emoji is ‘Dizzy Symbol’ for apple and Unicode. That’s two words.

Yes, unfortunately emojis are not each represented as a single character.


Bug filed. I think we should add special handling for emoji if the limit is 1 char.
