Font color changed because Element->Maximum Width: 10. (i.e) you can enter the maximum 10 characters only. Please Change the Maximum Width as 50. So that you can enter maximum 50 characters. Change the maximum width based on the database column length if the text Area in a form based on the database column.

I have created a TEXT AREA.What is the nature of the data?
Apart from default settings, below are the changes I have done,
1) Setting --> Character Count - 'Yes'
2) Element --> Form Element Width - 50
3) Element --> Maximum Width - 10
4) Element --> Form Element Height - 5
Why use a 50×5 textarea to enter a maximum of 10 characters? Sounds like a text item would be more appropriate.
shiva_0004 wrote:50 characters is not an excessive size for a text item. Why is it necessary to use a textarea?
Actual maximum width would be around 50 character and I have given 10 as width for testing purpose.
If you are determined to use a textarea, the simplest option is to set the Character Counter option to No. User input will still be limited to the maximum width specified, but this will not be indicated by switching to red text.
Thanks for your reply.
The Client's requirement is like he wanted the count to be displayed, and text color should not change on reaching the limit.
We have discussed all the work around for the same, but the requirement is like he wanted the Character count to be displayed, limit should be maintained, but the text font color should not change upon reaching the limit.
Kindly help me on this.
If this is the case, you can try to use JQuery plug-in for character counter instead of using APEX in-built plug-in. Find out the good character count plug-in. Try this link for that http://www.jquery4u.com/plugins/10-jquery-wordtext-counter-plugins/
