The length (number of characters) in a text box will be empty until you tab (or click) out of that control. One solution to your problem is setting a numeric field with -1 every time a key is clicked in an input field. The numeric field would be pre-set with the number of characters available and then subtract for each one added. The obvious flaw in this solution is when the backspace key is used. Aside from this we have no way to dynamically count the number of characters in a field as that field is being filled.
