Hi,

when i drop a rich text area to a form ist always very small. I can't find out, how i can edit the height in this widget. With text area it's the same problem. The rich text area is useless if its so small, only on line ....

Hi heinzschuh,

Have you tried to click on the black arrow that appear when you select the Rich Text Area ?

If they no appear on the right and left sides, you need to add new column with the green crosses at the top of the Form.

Hello, it might be a bug. Could you please report an issue ?

We have fixed the issue in Bonita 6.3, but I don't know at the moment when it will be released. Is it working for you with the suggestion of Nicolas ?

Hello

The first thursday of the month, the fix will be available in the maintenance version 6.2.5 .
As ttoine said this bug fix will be also released at the same time of the release of the 6.3

Cheers

Hello everyone, I'm using 5.10 but I really don't see any bonita_form_default.css in my war at C:\Program Files (x86)\BOS-5.10.1\studio\workspace\My Webap. I suppose it is bonita_forms.css. I'd like to know, hwever, how can I change the size of the text area (not the label) to cover two rows of my form grid. I tried via the studio but then the preview doesn't seem to stretch the widget in two consecutive rows.

Thanks in advance

This one is the BEST answer!

hello,

I think you just have to add this css rule

div.bonita_form_field div.bonita_rich_text{
height: auto;
}

Hope this help was useful to you

Regards

Nicolas

thanks you. are modifying the css file in the Studio, or directly in platform file ? if so, could you please give the patch to the css file for the forms ?

Hello
In production, it depends of the version of Bonita:

  1. before 6.1.2 you have to unzip the war and modify bonita_forms_default.css
  2. after the 6.1.2 you can edit the file bonita\client\tenants\[YOURTENANT]\work\theme\portal\css\bonita_forms_default.css

In the studio:
C:\[yourinstallpath]\workspace\bonita\client\platform\tenant-template\work\theme\portal\css\bonita_forms_default.css

Cheers

thanks. I think its the right way. But it may not be the right path. I edit the css and nothing happend. But I edit other things and nothing happend to.....

Submitted by ttoine on Mon, 03/03/2014 - 15:22

did you do a full refresh? ctrl+shift+r ? or did you flush the cache of you browser, so a fresh css file would be downloaded ?

I edit the css in Bonitastudio by clicking the Pool. Than Application -> Resources -> Folder CSS -> bonita_forms_default.css

now it works on the server. Not in the Application but thats ok....

Thanks a lot.

the brutal way is to find all the bonita_form_default.css in your in file system. Then search into those files this following css rule <em>textarea.bonita_form_field, div.bonita_form_field div.bonita_rich_text</em>

then insert this css block after the css properties block to override those rules

  1. div.bonita_form_field div.bonita_rich_text{<br />
  2. height: auto;<br />
  3. }

An issue was opened. It will be resolved as soon as possible.

I have the same problem using version 6.3.0. In version 6.2.6 was solved, but in 6.3.0 I can not resize the Ritch Text Area

same shit in 6.4.1 8-[

fix this problem, please. I dont want to manipulate your css-files directly.

I edit the css in Bonitastudio by clicking the Pool. Than Application -> Resources -> Folder CSS -> bonita_forms_default.css now it works on the server. Not in the Application but thats ok.... Thanks a lot.

So it works 4 me 2. But it is not the best way, i think.
