I'm not sure that string length detection in a text entry box could be made to work without a lot of messing about. The number of characters changes with the size of the box, the font size and how many blank pixels you want at each end of the string. All these are fixable if you use the key up interrupt. You could even enter right or centre justified text that way. Likewise with numbers. You could even shrink the font after x number of characters to allow more characters in the box for, say, a long part number.

Adding ease of use often takes away flexibility. It's a balancing act.
