The CL_GUI_TEXTEDIT shows the line and number of characters for the current line but we want to show the total number of characters that was entered so far including the lines above it. We need this especially when we use the auto-wrap option. We have a screen where we limit the characters to 150 and its auto-wrapping every 50 characters. Even though we put the limit of 150 as we have a constraint to accept 3 lines only from the user, they prefer that we also shows the total number of characters on the screen as they type it.
if you know the trick to do this, please let me know.
