I have a non cold fusion form that has a text area - it will not become a coldfusion form.

In the CF8 action page I want to test how much text - how long is the text area.
If it is too short - the user will receive an error message to add more description - eg at least 5 lines.

Please how do I test eg form.textarea passed from no cf form.
