    There's no automatic way unfortunately. You have to capture when changes is made to the edit box and in that handler prevent entering more than 4.
    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
    definition, not smart enough to debug it.
