LENGTH attribute

The length (number of characters) of the current content of the editor widget.
Data type: INTEGER

If the editor widget is not already realized and you reference its LENGTH attribute, the AVM realizes the widget.
In Windows, both the regular editor and the large editor support LENGTH.
