I'm not sure what version this stopped working in, but the TextEditorOptions.MaxLength editor option is no longer working when defined through MVC.
I've attached an example solution that duplicates this. The Name has a MaxLength of 10, but the user can enter more then 10 characters. Is there something I'm doing wrong here?
TextEditorOptions.MaxLength works if you specify the column key:
updatingSetting2.ColumnKey = "Name";
You are absolutely correct and this functionality is working fine. We had a coding issue in our main solution.
