I have created a web form in visual Studio 2005. There is a comments text box which I have limited to 500 characters. I would like to display another textbox or label that shows how many characters remain until the max character limit is reached. Every time a character is entered I would like to have the textbox that is counting the characteres be updated. how can I do this using VB?

I am new to VB. Any help would be appreciated.
