rah_expanding // Dynamically growing textareas

Rah_expanding is an admin-side plugin that makes textarea elements grow automatically with the user’s input. While the user types, the field’s height will increase to fit the content.

Re: rah_expanding // Dynamically growing textareas

Really nice! To have this working with aro_myadmin I have to change aro_myadmin <div id=“body”> to <div=“body1”> both in plugin code and in corresponding selectors in myadmin.css. There is an issue because id=“body” is used also for the first textarea and you can use only one in a page. Fortunately with this modification everything work. I’ll post this also on aro_myadmin thread.

Thanks!

Yep, that is “little” mistake in the default aro_myadmin layout, ‘cause same ID can be used only once :) And when this plugin uses it as selector (textarea#body), then it kinda makes it unfunctional.

This would make a fine extension for the public-facing side when attached to .txpCommentInputMessage, I think.

Re: rah_expanding // Dynamically growing textareas

For myself i’ve done a little more interesting thing – besides adjusting height of textareas i made then wider, using such formula: new_width=width_of_browser - width_of_left_column - width_of_right_column because default width of textareas (forms, plugins_code, pages is too little for me.

Yup! :)

At the beginning of the year Gerhard Lazu announced text areas for custom fields. This will be really interesting for those, too, in order to save as much space as possible. Looks like it’s almost just css to hack, once they’ve arrived :)
