Experts,

We're trying to add an HTMLTextArea to a web form in a word document using the WebTools. The default value for WordWrap has been set to OFF but if we try to change it to TRUE or YES or 1 or ON we keep getting an "Invalid Property Value" we've searched but can't find any other possible values,

Help !

Hi,

Valid entries:
OFF  Word-wrapping is disabled (default).
PHYSICAL  The text is displayed and submitted word-wrapped
VIRTUAL  The text is displayed word-wrapped, but is submitted as typed.

BTW, when printing is there any way to stretch the TextArea so that we don't crop the text due to height settings on the textarea ??

There is no attribute for this as I know (and could be applied via element properties dialog in Word) but I would use CSS for textarea element like below:

<html>
<head>
<style media="print">
      textarea {height:auto; overflow:visible;}
</style>
</head>
<body>
      <textarea cols="40" rows="4"></textarea>
</body>
</html>
