Can I restrict a Site-Collumn with the common "Additional Column Settings" which we see in the Browser when I create the Collumn in a Feature in Microsoft Visual Studio? (I would like to create a Single Line of Text Site Collumn with the restriction to just 30 chars)

<Elements xmlns="">  
       Name="My Headline"
       DisplayName="My Headline"
       Group="Custom Site Columns">
