Textbox with EmptyMessage longer than the set MaxLenght prevents page submitting in IE11
When TextBox with set MaxLength property has an EmptyMessage longer than MaxLength the form is not submitted in IE11.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Run the following code in IE11:

        <telerik:RadTextBox runat="server" ID="txbRelatedMessageVersion" Width="200px"
            MaxLength="10" EmptyMessage="Message Version" />

        <telerik:RadButton ID="amendBtn" runat="server"
            Text="Submit Page />

2. Click inside RadTextBox

3. Click the button

Result: the empty message is considered as a not valid value and the page is not submitted. Changing the MaxLenght to 15 will allow to submit the page successfully.

The issue occurs under IE only and since Microsoft is discontinuing Internet Explorer on June 15, 2022, we decided to not fix it. You can see more at

Internet Explorer 11 desktop application ending support for certain operating systems.

Please encourage your users to use Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge Chromium, or Firefox instead of IE.
