How To Use

Create a new instance of Form.AutoGrow for your TextArea-Element

new Form.AutoGrow('myTextarea');

Options

  • minHeightFactor (number, defaults to 2): The minimum textarea height based on the font-size
  • margin (number, defaults to 0): A margin to be added (subtracted) to the calculated textarea height

CSS Tips

Use the following CSS-Styles to get most out of Form.AutoGrow.

Hide the vertical scrollbar that sometimes appears in Webkit while resizing

textarea {
    overflow-y: hidden;
}

Hide the resize handle in Webkit

textarea {
    resize: none;
}

Animate the height via CSS-Transforms

textarea {
    -moz-transition-duration: 250ms;
    -webkit-transition-duration: 250ms;
    -o-transition-duration: 250ms;
    transition-duration: 250ms;
    -webkit-transition-property: height;
    -moz-transition-property: height;
    -o-transition-property: height;
    transition-property: height;
}
