How to Change the Height of a TextArea?

9 posts in this topic

Posted

Hi

In many webpages, we have a TextArea element, and often its Height is not enough.

I am trying to change the Height of a TextArea,

and I succeed in changing the value,

however the Element does not "refresh" itself according to its new height..

Only If I drag it slightly, then it "jumps" to the Height that I set.

The code I have for now is this:

Local $TA   =$oIE.document.getElementById("textarea_id")
$TA.style.height="575px"

What do I need to add to make it work?

Thank you

Hi,

Try this :

Local $TA =$oIE.document.getElementById("textarea_id")
$TA.style.height="575px !important"

Br, FireFox.

Zohar,

I believe that the IE object has a refresh method. So you might try

$oie.refresh
after you alter the property.

Thank you..

I need to do it on the current page, with its current content,

so Refreshing will not be a good solution for this here..

I need the page to remain as it is, without being refreshed..

FireFox:

Is this real?

To write the browser "!important"? :)

If yes, then it did not work...

@Zohar: the !important is part of CSS. The styles on the page determine if it's needed or not.

Why resize it? Can't you just paste your text in there?

Hi Myicq

Thank you..

Weird that it doesn't work for me :/

When ran, it causes an Error..

There's no ready-made text.

I want to use this when I type in a forum.

What's wrong with creating ready made text in an editor? :blink:

If you need to resize a textbox you can use Google Chrome. The function is built in there.
