Multi Line Input Box

Hi there,

How can I create an input box of (200x100), which is multiline!

That is not an HTML specification, by definition an input box is a single line. if you want a multiline 'input' box, use a TEXTAREA control instead. It is designed to handle multiline.

Ok, fine for me, but is there an AW.UI.TextArea?

I don't think so...

In the grid, I can have a multiline input, but it is not working with the control outside of the grid...

So is there a way to represent a multi line text control with the current version of AW?

You can create any HTML element in AW using the following technique:

obj = new AW.System.Control;
obj.setTag("TEXTAREA"); 
Now you have a textarea control.

Thks Jim,
but I used AW.HTML.TEXTAREA... works fine for me...

Just I want to know if there will be a skinable version for this control which goes with all existing skins.

Hm, I thought I tried that and got an error... That's why I suggested a Control with a change to Tag. Glad it's working, even if in a diminished capacity. Don't know if Alex is going to make a skinable one.
