what html attributes (or other settings) do i need
to set to change the size of a richtext field displayed on the web/browser?

the default size is too width; i'd like to appear it smaller.

it'd be also nice if someone could point me to a list of html attibutes which i can use to change the appearance of fields or text viewed by a browser.


thanks

If you use a richtext field
Are you using the html display or the java display

If you use the Java display
Go to the HTML attributes of that field
and type
"Width = 200 Height=100"
or other values

If you use HTML attributes
use "Rows = 200 Cols = 150"

PS For a normal text field, you can use Size and Maxlength
"SIZE=40 MAXLENGTH=40"

hi,

thanks for the quick answer.
i use html (a lot browser don't shown this applet, even if java is enabled).

unfortunatelly nothing changes if i use these settings in the html tab of this filed.
just to mention: this filed is inside a table.

any idea what to do?

do you also see my question 2 times?
if yes, did you answer both separately?
(if yes, i'll delete one of them).

so, it works.
yes, you can write it also there
but I write them most of the time in the programmers pane
after the HTML attributes event.
everything between ""

it's a little bit better.
if i insert this code in the programmers pane (section html attributes) the richtext field appears a lot smaller
than before (which would nearly solve my actual problem).

..but it doesn't matter which values i enter, the size doesn't change.
any possibility to send a screenshot ?

if you don't mind, could also you have a look at my munbering question?

I did it already hunderd times and it work each time
"rows=50 cols=40"

Just copy and past this, but remember everything must be between quotes.
else send your database to akiratjeakiratje@hotmial.com
and I'll have a look to it

hi,

this works now fine.
you wrote before:

after the HTML attributes event.
everything between ""

now:
but remember everything must be between quotes.

after using the quotes the appearance changes by chaning the values.


thanks a lot!!!
