Does anyone know how to properly implement a minimum length for an onkeyup a4j:support nested in a text field. I have a text field that after a user enters 3 characters, the app needs to determine the count of the records that match that entry. I can't use a rich:suggestion box here I don't think because I don't really need suggestion box type functionality. Is there a way to make sure the event won't fire unless there are 3 characters in the field. If I put a min length on the h:inputText will that cause issues with my regular error handling?
