    Setting a Character Limit in an Infopath Form but allowing word wrap at the same time

    I have a customer who is requesting that one of their text fields have a character limit, however, as you know when you set a character limit, it does not word wrap. it will keep going on til infinity, so how can I set a character limit and allow the field to wrap the words to the next line? Please help. Thank you!!! MM

    Resolved!!!! Setting a Character Limit in an Infopath Form but allowing word wrap at the same time

    Nevermind found a solution: Solution Open the form in InfoPath Select the field you wish to limit On the Ribbon, click on Home -> Manage Rules Add a New Validation Rule Call it whatever you like, e.g. “CheckStringLength” Set the condition as follows: string-length(.)>250
