Maximum characters in input value

Hi Experts

Does the value property of an input control (select option, in specific), have an maximum allowed characters?

I want to store in the value property a long string of Values that I nee in my js..  I can use hidden fields, but I want to avoid clutter.

Thanks

I don't know of any character limit.  If it's not going to be user input, why not just put it in a javascript variable?

Is there a way to keep a JS variable "alive" during the entire time the page is loaded.

Simple example:

var count = 0;

Then you have an input button with onClick="increaseCount();"

function increaseCount(){
count++;
}

So, will count be alive?

'Alive' is an odd term to me.  Javascript variables are available at all times after a page is loaded.  Your example with 'count' should work fine.  Loading order can be important in that you can't use a function or a variable before it is declared.  That's true in all the languages I know about.

I have pages where the javascript variable values change depending things like buttons on the page.  They also get re-written when a form submit is done thru the validation routines.
