.NET WebControl: TextBox with counter

Came across a need for a TextBox control with a countdown counter. Since I couldnt find one that would fit my requirements I decided to write one up.

It is in a very basic format at the moment and there is quite a lot that can be done with it. Feel free to improve, enhance, extend it.

Here is a screen shot of what it looks like:

TextBox with a countdown counter.

It is a very handy control to have.  You can use it in all three of the TextBox mode’s i.e. SingleLine, MultiLine, Password.

You can get the control and source code from here:


Below is an example of how you can use this WebControl:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    TextBoxWithCounter tbwCounter =  
    new TextBoxWithCounter(200, 5, 25, TextBoxMode.MultiLine);
