Infragistics.Win.UltraWinGrid Namespace > UltraGridColumn Class : MaxLength Property

Returns or sets the maximum length of the text that can be entered into a cell. Zero indicates that there is no limit.

Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Public Property MaxLength As Integer
C# 
public int MaxLength {get; set;}

Example

This snippet demonstrates how the length of a cell value can be restricted via the MinLength and MaxLength properties.

Visual BasicCopy Code
Private Sub SetupGrid()
   ' Set the "fname" column to only allow values that are between 1 and 15 characters long.
   '
   Me.ultraGrid1.DisplayLayout.Bands("customers").Columns("fname").MinLength = 1
   Me.ultraGrid1.DisplayLayout.Bands("customers").Columns("fname").MaxLength = 15
End Sub
C#Copy Code
private void SetupGrid()
{
	// Set the "fname" column to only allow values that are between 1 and 15 characters long.
	//
	this.ultraGrid1.DisplayLayout.Bands["customers"].Columns["fname"].MinLength = 1;
	this.ultraGrid1.DisplayLayout.Bands["customers"].Columns["fname"].MaxLength = 15;	
}

Remarks

The MaxLength property gives you the ability to limit the amount of text that can be entered in column cells. You can use this property to enforce database-specific or application specific limitations.
