Topic: Can't get WYSIWYG editor to a specific size in a modal window

DashMarketingGroup priority asked 11 months ago

I am using MDBootstrap Pro 6.4.0 and I am trying to get a WYSIWYG editor to work properly in a modal window. I want to be able to set the size (height) of the editor so that it doesn't overflow the screen on small displays (such as phones). I found one answer here in the forums on this issue from 2 years ago, saying to set the wysiwyg-content-textarea class with the desired height, but this isn't working. How can I set the maximum height of the editor using CSS so that it is no more than 150 pxiels high?

That didn't work. Here is the code I am using:

        <div class="modal frame fade bottom" id="replyModal" tabindex="-1" aria-labelledby="replyModal" aria-hidden="true">
        <div class="modal-dialog modal-frame modal-bottom">
            <div class="modal-content">
                <div class="modal-header bcBlue text-white">
                    <h5 class="modal-title" id="replyTitle"><i class="fa-solid fa-comment-dots me-2"></i>Post To The Wall</h5>
                    <button type="button" class="btn-close btn-close-white" data-mdb-dismiss="modal" aria-label="Close"></button>
                <div class="modal-body">
                    <div class="row">
                        <div class="col-12 text-center">
                            <div class="wysiwyg border border-1 rounded" data-mdb-wysiwyg="wysiwyg" id="replyEditor"  
                                data-mdb-wysiwyg-links-section="false" data-mdb-wysiwyg-textarea-name="ReplyText">
                <div class="modal-footer">
                    <button type="button" class="btn btn-success btn-lg" id="btnSavePost"><i class="fa-solid fa-share me-2"></i>Post</button>
                    <button type="button" class="btn btn-danger btn-lg" data-mdb-dismiss="modal"><i class="fa-solid fa-circle-xmark me-2"></i>Close</button>

And the CSS I have is:

#replyEditor.wysiwyg-content {
max-height: 150px;
overflow: auto;


The output when run looks like this: Screenshot of output

The editor doesn't size according to the CSS, and nothing else I have tried works.

I would appreciate your help on this. Thank you!

Try adding styles like this:

.wysiwyg-content {
  max-height: 150px;
  overflow: auto

Please insert min. 20 characters.
