Topic: Material Textarea can't scrolled

webgenery free asked 3 years ago

Hi team,

I start to use material textarea but I don't understand why the scrollbar is hidden with the attributes 'overflow-y: hidden'

If I have large content in it I can't scroll back to see it.

There are 2 possibilities that could solve this problem :

  • Ajust textarea's height with JS each times we add an extra line.

  • Delete the attribute 'overflow-y: hidden' to scroll in textarea

I have already made something like that to fix the problem.

I just want to know if you can fix the problem in the Material Textarea widget.
