Character Count with Space | JavaScript Function Tool

Sometimes we need to type and submit our content on any website. And many websites have a fixed limit of character. We can't write more than limit. And some websites don't show the number of characters which we type at that time.

So we start to count our character manually while typing, which is so annoying. Today we'll make our own tool fo Character Count with Space. So Welcome Back to the CodingTuting with Jignesh Panchal

Focus on the source code

As you know, I always give a summary of the source code before share it. See How I did this? Don't be hurry for source code.

I'm using Google Fonts in my code. You can use it too or any others as you like.

  • I created a basic structure using HTML and gave descriptive class names for CSS.
  • I applied styles on the page using CSS.
  • After completing the full design I placed onKeyup and onPaste event in <textarea> field.
  • I called the appropriate JavaScript function while fired the onKeyup and onPaste event.
  • Also I've used window.onload = function() for autometic focus on the <textarea> on page load.
