    TextArea wordwarp bug

    I believe I have found an unwanted feature with the TextArea control.

    I was finding that my TextArea controls were not word wrapping, which I can see from other posts is not a new topic, however, I am trying to validate my data entry by using the MaxLength property if the control. I have found that if the MaxLength property is set, then the wordwrap does not work.

    Is there a way around this as I want both features?

    The code below is a very simple example. I am using v0.81

    <%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="TestJDG.aspx.vb" Inherits="TestJDG" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Coolite.Ext.Web" Namespace="Coolite.Ext.Web" TagPrefix="ext" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <ext:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" />
    <ext:Panel runat="server" Border="false">
    <ext:FormLayout ID="FormLayout1" runat="server">
    <ext:TextArea ID="TextArea1" runat="server" HideLabel="true" Height="40" MaxLength="120" />

    I think it is fixed already in 0.8.2
    You can use AutoEl to turn om wrapping. Please see

    The AutoEl fix has caused another feature to pop up.

    I am using am AjaxEvent on the click of a button on my form to use the contents of my TextArea like this:

    Sub btnSave_Click(ByVal snder As Object, ByVal e As AjaxEventArgs)
        RaiseEvent SelectSave(txtNEW.Text, chkCheckbox.Checked, txtBottomTextAreaNew.Text)
    End Sub
    However, txtNEW.Text only populates if I do not add the AutoEl property to my TextArea control. With the AutoEl property it returns an emptry string.

    Is there some way of getting around this?

    My TextArea html:
    <ext:TextArea ID="txtNEW" runat="server" MaxLength="1000" AllowBlank="false"
    AutoEl="={{tag:'textarea', wrap: 'on'}}" Width="500" Height="100" EnableKeyEvents="true">
    <KeyUp Fn="UpdateCharsLeft1" />

    I have tried getting the value from the TextArea using an ExtraParam on the click event, but this too is blank.

    Anyone got any ideas about my TextArea issue?

    Hi, i have the same problem and using 0.8.2 already...

    The text is show in the textarea, but if i try to get the .text on codebehind is allways nullstring.

    If i enter in the filed and put a single caracter on the last position, for example, then the codebehind can get the entire text.

    <ext:TextArea ID="txtTest" AutoEl="={{tag:'textarea',wrap: 'on', name:'txtTest'}}" runat="server" FieldLabel="Teste" MsgTarget="Side" AllowBlank="false" BlankText="Campo obrigatrio" /
    hope it helps.
