Within a DetailsView control I have several BoundField controls.  When I am in edit or insert mode for the DetailsView control, a TextBox is created for each BoundField.  How can I set the MaxLength property for these TextBox's?

Instead of a BoundField, you could define a Template field, and hard code the TextBox with MaxLength set.  It might also be possible to get a reference to the TextBox from the BoundField, but that would be significantly more difficult.

How would the Template Field work?  Do you give the TextBox the DataField attribute that would be part of the BoundField?

Short snippet:

<EditItemTemplate>
    <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="TextBox1" Text='<%# Bind("Field1") %>' />
<EditItemTemplate>

This worked after putting that code inside of <asp:TemplateField>

Thanks
