Multi Line Form Text Box
Hi there. This video is going to show you how to put in a big text box with multiple lines and placeholder text If for the life of you, you can't find it. It's because it's not an input, like these other ones, it's just called plain old text area, but let's work out how to do it together now in the video. All right, first thing, let's put it inside its own little div like we have here the input wrapper and put just to keep it on its own line. Okay. Okay. And how do we find it? The weird thing is, is that it's not an input type. Okay, so there's lots of inputs. Okay. But weirdly, it's not one of those. Okay. It's just called text area. Okay, strange. There's a lot of the same functionality. Just weird name, name and idea is the same. This is going to be our message. We're gonna do the same for message. Okay, columns and rows is interesting. I'm gonna turn wrapping back on every time I restart this thing, rapping, rap, rap, rap with you, toggle word wrap. Cool. Um, so columns and rows, r...
ows are easy. Okay, It's just how tall it is. And columns aren't columns like we've been talking about in this class, it's just how many characters wide. Okay, so it's 30. Yeah, 30. 30 letters wide. So let's have a little look by default. Let's go and have a look. I haven't launched it today. Here we go, go live and there it is. That's my text area. Okay, so let's adjust the Rose. Okay, Downtown, I don't know five just so we can see and we'll go columns. Let's go to 100 crazy times. There you go. Okay, you can do other things to it as well, like before. So this is where actually nothing goes inside of this. Okay. Because that's where the actual people type, but just before it closes there, okay, after rows of five, I'm gonna put in space, I'm gonna put in placeholder and this is a um okay, this is just the placeholder text like before there it is there? Nice. Nothing else I can really tell you about that one. Yeah, that's what we're gonna style it and the text inside of it later on, after we've kind of gone through a few of them will keep these all separate so that you can find them easy. That is the big box that you can type multiple lines into, also known as text area. Alright, next video
