Feature Request

Feature description

With the tickets #3717 and #3714, a character count was added to Textarea and Input elements. It would be great to have the same feature for WYSIWYG fields as well.

This would include:

  • A character count info on the WYSIWYG Editor
  • A setting in Pimcore DataObject how many characters are allowed for this input

There are plugins for CKEditor to realize this feature, e.g. this one:

My recommendation would be to include the plugin with the configuration

config.extraPlugins = 'wordcount';
config.wordcount = {
    // Whether or not you want to show the Word Count
    showWordCount: false,

    // Whether or not you want to show the Paragraphs Count
    showParagraphs: true,

    // Whether or not you want to show the Char Count
    showCharCount: true,

    // Whether or not you want to count Spaces as Chars
    countSpacesAsChars: true,

    // Maximum allowed Char Count
    maxCharCount: ##PIMCORE_VALUE##

Does anyone else need this feature?
