Textbox help needed

hi ,could you please help me , i would like to make a text box for numbers wich should not exceed 99.
and thank you verymuch

Three options I know of:

  1. If you have a button to “submit” the textbox value, test this value, if >99 then notify user/reset textbox

  2. Use a clock timer, set to say 100ms. In the clock timer event, test the value of the textbox, if > 99, notify user/reset textbox

  3. Use Taifun’s Textbox Extension, which has an event listener to do much the same as number 2 above

A fourth way

What did you finally decide to do Ben?
