Hello,

I set my textbox mode to  TextMode="MultiLine" in order to add multiple rows in my text box, but since the size of my text box is large enough i do not nee to see the scroll bar, is there a way to make it invisible?

since the size of my text box is large enough
so, in your case you can set style="overflow:hidden" to the textbox.

and additionally you can restrict the user to enter more than the allowable text in the text box by adding the mentioned script below.

and also i added a custom attribute to the textbox as MyMaxLength to set the maxlength value.
<script type="text/javascript">
	function CheckMaxLength(e, TextBox) {
		switch (e.keyCode) {
			case 37: // left
				return true;
			case 38: // up
				return true;
			case 39: // right
				return true;
			case 40: // down
				return true;
			case 8: // backspace
				return true;
			case 46: // delete
				return true;
			case 27: // escape
				TextBox.value = '';
				return true;
		}
		return (TextBox.value.length < TextBox.getAttribute("MyMaxLength"));
	}
</script>

<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2"
     runat="server" 
     TextMode="MultiLine" 
     Height="130px" 
     Width="300px" 
     style="overflow:hidden;"
     MyMaxLength="12"
     onkeypress="return CheckMaxLength(event, this);" >
</asp:TextBox>

Open in new window

Hope this will work for you.

Thank you it worked, regarding your script that controls length of text entered, is there a way to use the same one for multiple textboxes or do I need to call s different script for each textbox? I have about 36 textboxes in my application.

you can call the same script for all 36 text boxes.

just add the MyMaxlength and onkeypress attribute to all text boxes.
<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2"
     runat="server" 
     TextMode="MultiLine" 
     Height="130px" 
     Width="300px" 
     style="overflow:hidden;"
     MyMaxLength="12"
     onkeypress="return CheckMaxLength(event, this);" >
</asp:TextBox>

<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox3"
     runat="server" 
     TextMode="MultiLine" 
     Height="130px" 
     Width="300px" 
     style="overflow:hidden;"
     MyMaxLength="12"
     onkeypress="return CheckMaxLength(event, this);" >
</asp:TextBox>
....
....
....
<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox36"
     runat="server" 
     TextMode="MultiLine" 
     Height="130px" 
     Width="300px" 
     style="overflow:hidden;"
     MyMaxLength="12"
     onkeypress="return CheckMaxLength(event, this);" >
</asp:TextBox>

Open in new window
