hey ozamarripa,


to set the maxChars on a TextInput you would change teh maxChars property of the .textField property of the TextInput object. the textField property is a reference to the inner text field. use the following codea as an example:



var myInput:TextInput = new TextInput();
myInput.textField.maxChars = 10;



hope that helps. good luck!
