$('textarea').keypress(function(e) {

        tlength = tval.length,
        remain = parseInt(setTotalNumberOfWordCounter - tlength);
    if (remain <= 0 && e.which !== 0 && e.charCode !== 0) { $('textarea').val((tval).substring(0, tlength - 1)); $('#show_count').val(0); return false; } if (tlength > setTotalNumberOfWordCounter) { //compare this length with total count
        tval = tval.substring(0, setTotalNumberOfWordCounter);
