Change display size of sys_TextArea in content editor?

Does anyone know of a way to change the display size of a sys_TextArea control in a content editor? Our users need to enter a number of lines of text into the field, and I would like to make the field display both wider and taller, so they don’t need to scroll around as much. This has nothing to do with the database column type/length - just the display of the field in the content editor.

I couldn’t find anything about this in the documentation. As an experiment, I’ve tried setting the dlg_height control parameter, and it seems to make no difference.


The sys_Textarea control has both “cols” and “rows” parameters. Do these not do what you want?

“rows” and “cols” parameters are what I was looking for. Thanks, Dave.
