I know I can validate the maximum number of characters by using the ivy validation mechanism.

Put I want to prevent that the user even can input more than the allowed character.

You can specify the data type of an RTextField. A data type can define how many characters are allowed to input. See the following example to limit the maximum number of characters to 5:

textField = new RTextField();
textField.setDataType(new ULCStringDataType(5));
