richtextfield: html attribute needed to set the size for web view

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).

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

the settings are at:
html tag of the field, then inside "other"

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!!!
