    <script language = "Javascript">

        function tbLimit() {
            var tbObj = (typeof != 'undefined') ? : event.srcElement;

            if (tbObj.value.length == tbObj.maxLength * 1) return false;

        function tbCount(visCnt) {

            var tbObj = event.srcElement;
            if (tbObj.value.length > tbObj.maxLength * 1) tbObj.value = tbObj.value.substring(0, tbObj.maxLength * 1);

            if (visCnt) visCnt.innerText = tbObj.maxLength - tbObj.value.length;


<form id="form1" runat="server">
