Getting an asp.net TextBox to fill a screen and adjust heightdynamical ly

I am trying to figure out if there is a way to get a regular asp.net
TextBox to fill the screen, both height and width. When I drop a
TextBox onto a blank asp.net page and set the height="100%",
width="100", and the TextMode="Multi Line", the TextBox will fill the
width of the page, and will adjust the width dynamically as the page
changes size, but the height of the textbox is not full screen as I
would like. It remains at 2 lines high.

Is there a way to get the height of a textbox to fill the screen, and
adjust its size automatically when the screen size changes? Thanks.

So does that mean it is not possible to set the TextBox height so that
it will be full screen, and automatically adjust when the page size is

Ultimately what I'm trying to do is create a page very similar to an e-
mail inbox page, with a grid on the top half of the screen, a splitter
bar, and a TextBox at the bottom that always fills the bottom half of
the page, even when the splitter bar is adjusted. I was hoping I
could do this with a TextBox on the bottom. Any suggestions?

Thanks Bruce! That that worked exactly as I had hoped.

I did find that the "onresize" event in the body element is not valid
for XHTML Transitional markup. I took out the DOCTYPE reference to
test your code, and it worked. I'll probably have to find a work-
around for the onresize event if I want my web page to enforce XHTML

Thanks again.

xhtml has no replacement (it just depicated, not removed), but its a valid
event for html 4.0/ 5.0/ xhtml2 (undepicated if htmlelement).

Hello I'm new to ASP.NET and am working on a web page where I have several textboxes that are bound to a table in a dataset.

However, now I've reached the point where I need to allow the user to edit the textboxes and then save the values back to the SQL database. Do I need to manually take the textbox values...

Hi, I'm writing a control that inherits from TextBox. I need to adjust the width of this control based on the number of characters in the control. I'm having a hard time with this. The problem (as I see it) is that the size of the font is in points, but the size of the TextBox is in Pixels. I can't figure out a way to use VB.NET to convert.

I have a table with 1 row which is used to hold some application wide items (one item per field, hence I only need 1 row). I want to bind one of the fields to a textbox. After setting up the oledbconnection and dataAdapter and filling the DataSet (ds) I tried this: TextBox1.DataBindings.Add("text", ds.Tables.Item("MyFile"), "MyField") I then put the following code in the SAVE button click event:

Hi, Outline of problem: I've built a set of user controls that are used to output questions for a survey and gather the responses using simple radio buttons. I'm adding an optional textbox to the question control to allow individual typed responses per question. I've got a maximum length to enforce which matches the underlying data table design.

Hi, I have a multi-line textbox in a gridview when in edit mode. The textbox (rendered as textarea in browser) set cols to 20 by default. I'd like the textbox to 'adjust' itself to the width of the column. There are cases when the column is much wider than the textbox. I could programmatically set cols (through Columns property) but this is not going to work. Is there a way to do that? Thanks,
