Default size of Text Area Widget



I have a lot of Text Area widget with a long text (20-50 lines). When I run the process, I see only the first 4 lines and I have to stretch the field to see more lines. How can I set the widget to display more lines by default ?

I try to change the values in the Appearence tab of the widget. There is a field "Widget height (in number of lines)" but it seems to do nothing.

Hi Yannick,

the problem is a long standing one with the default CSS which seems to have been fixed in 6.5.+

In the Application Resources edit Bonita_form_default.css and change

textarea.bonita_form_field, div.bonita_form_field

from height: 75px;

to height: auto;

that should do it.

regards Seán

I know this question is old, but I'm having a hard time creating a CSS and using the same in my forms created in the UI Designer, so it's possible to create a sternum CSS and use it in UI Designer? Or do you know how to edit this CSS Default of UI Designer Forms to meet my needs
