Set TextBox Maxlength property in formview dynamically

VS 2010, .Net 4, Asp.Net

I need to be able to set the maxlength property of every textbox in the insertitem template of a formview, dynamically using the bound field's sql datatype and length (I am using a linq datasource) - I only need to do this for nchars and nvarchars.

Is there any way to do this at runtime?

attach below javascript code to textbox's event to dynamically change it's maxlength property.

TextBox1.Attributes.Add("onfocus", "return this.maxLength = 50;");

Open in new window
