Hi Guys,
        How to create a large text area in dialog screens. Not that of the size of a text box. A larger one just as that of the size of this question body one.

Thanx and Regards,
Ravi Kumar.

You have to use the text area GUI  control.

Create an area on your Screen and fill it with the text area control ...

Once you have created the container on the screen - in this case it is called SC_CONT_9000
you then create the control

* create container
  if gv_custom_container is initial.
    create object gv_custom_container
     exporting container_name = 'SC_CONT_9000'.

* create text control
    create object gv_text_editor
            parent = gv_custom_container
            wordwrap_mode = cl_gui_textedit=>wordwrap_at_windowborder
            wordwrap_to_linebreak_mode = cl_gui_textedit=>false
            error_cntl_create      = 1
            error_cntl_init        = 2
            error_cntl_link        = 3
            error_dp_create        = 4
            gui_type_not_supported = 5.

    call method gv_text_editor->set_toolbar_mode
              toolbar_mode = gv_text_editor->true
              error_cntl_call_method = 1
              invalid_parameter      = 2
              others                 = 3.

    call method gv_text_editor->set_statusbar_mode
              statusbar_mode = gv_text_editor->false
              error_cntl_call_method = 1
              invalid_parameter      = 2
              others                 = 3.

    call method gv_text_editor->set_readonly_mode
                  readonly_mode = gv_text_editor->true
                  error_cntl_call_method = 1
                  invalid_parameter      = 2
                  others                 = 3.

** you then need to get your text ...

** then convert it to a stream
* convert itf text to stream text
  call function 'CONVERT_ITF_TO_STREAM_TEXT'
            itf_text    = perm_tlinetab
            text_stream = lt_text_table.

* add it to the control
  call method gv_text_editor->set_text_as_stream
            text = lt_text_table
            error_dp        = 1
            error_dp_create = 2
            others          = 3.
