i already set the maxlength to 15 and also codes it to form load but the maxlength of the textbox is only 10 that if i exceed to that number i encountered an overflow..

by the way thanks for the reply:)

Are you have tried to set from textbox properties? On MaxLength.

Click the Textbox go to --> Properties --> MaxLength --> Desired Length(5,10)

Or you can set it programmatically YourtextboxName.maxlength=10
