The attribute "maxlength" of form field "textarea" it is not implemented.

I am going to attach a component that you can use to test it.

Thanks for the report and the PR.


Maybe you can take a few moments to add a couple of extra attributes as well:


- placeholder 


- form 


- selectionDirection


- selectionEnd


- selectionStart


- wrap 


I hope I did not miss anything.




It could really speed up the process not to get a bug report for each missing attribute in the future. 


Thanks for your contribution!

Thanks for the work done on this one. Unfortunately there has been no real progress / tests so far and we are closing this issue right now.It can always be re-opened if further information is provided or anybody volunteers to test it.Thanks for your contribution.

If you tell me, how it can be tested, i'd be happy to do so.

I already wanted to implement it by myself, but but after a joomla-update, i would have to do these changes again. So i really need these things to be implemented in the next version.

Is there a detailled description how testing can be done here?

Please note that the this site is no longer used. Please follow the issue here:

To briefly answer your question, this can be merged after two testers have installed the fix and confirm that the code works as expected. This is usually done by a comment like:

@test - works as expected.


Hope this helps.
