Textarea control properties

This question is answered

Hi,

How do you show horizontal and vertical scrollbars in the textarea control? What, How, when and where do you set these properties?

Regards,

Meyrick Flanegan.

  • Hello Meyrick,

    The general answer is that you should be able to control these options of the textarea control using CSS properties.

    I noticed that setting CSS properties via CSS file does not seem to be used by the page.

    Looking at the Appery.io forums, I found a reference to the Appery() object and setting the style attribute with "!important".

    Here is a sample JavaScript code that you can use on the Load event of a page:

    Progress("mobiletextarea_5").attr("style", "white-space: nowrap; resize: none; overflow-x: scroll; overflow-y: scroll; width: 300px; height: 200px !important");

    I hope this helps.
