jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful and optimized framework, platform-independent, and widely supported. The jqxTextArea represents a jQuery Textarea widget that is used to insert text content inside the textbox.

The minLength property is used to set or return the minimum number of characters needed before triggering auto-complete suggestions. It accepts Number type value and its default value is 1.

Syntax:

  • Set the minLength property.

    $('selector').jqxTextArea({ minLength: Number });

     



  • Return the minLength property.

    var minLength = $('selector').jqxTextArea('minLength');
