Hi
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?

Thanks

Wing
