Can you make a multi line text box appear wider? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know when you have a multi line text box as part of a list, you can make it show however many lines long that you want it to in the edit form, but I have a situation where the business user is not pleased with it's narrow aspect regardless of how long I may make it for them. They wan something that looks more like a word window

    Can this be done, and if so, how?

    Thank you in advance.

  • You should be able to customise this with JQuery.  A standard Google search will return some useful results.

  • I found this discussion but it seems that there are mixed results with the instructions.

    Anyone try this technique of editing the core.css or OWS.CSS?
