How to autosize a textarea with the window?

Let's say you have a textarea in a HTML form.
Now you reduce the size of the window.
I need to autosize the textarea as well, otherwise I must scroll down to find the textarea.

How do you reduce the size of the textarea with the window?

I can't seem to find an answer to this.
Thanks in advance for any help!

A piece of advice is not to try to resize evreything for window, you are asking for trouble and mostly people do not like it

        {   if (sVal.charAt(i).charCodeAt(0) == 13) { nRowCnt +=1; } }  
     
        if (nRowCnt < (nVal / nCols)) { nRowCnt = 1 + (nVal / nCols); }
        txtBox.rows = nRowCnt;
  }
