Change font size in a text area

36 New Member
I have tried to do this several ways.

I have a text area on a form that I want people to be able to type in. When the text area is typed in, the text is very large. I would like to be able to make the text smaller when someone is typing into the form.

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure if this is what you're asking for but you can use CSS to format the textarea.

[HTML]<style type="text/css">
textarea {font-size:12px; width:200px; height:200px;}
</style>[/HTML]

How do I detect when the font size has been changed (especially by user action: either Ctrl+Scroll wheel or View/Text Size)? This is just for use on IE 5.5+, but it would be great if there was a generic solution. Thanks, Csaba Gabor from New York

I am a bit curious about this. The graphic design people I work with say it is their preferred font for web pages. The reason being that it is "kinder" to the eye both in terms of shape and size. The HTML "hardcore elititst" profess that it is a useless font because it is too big compared to other fonts. Personally I do not care one way or the other, but I generally trust

This is how I do it now. 1. Determine the dimensions of the rectangle. 2. Set a my font size to a fixed maximum size. 3. Apply the font my string and measure the string using the graphics object. 4. If string size is less than the size of the rectangle, we are done.

Sorry if the question is a bit basic. I generally express my font sizes in pixels, originally to handle the Macintosh/Windows font size differences (though I believe that they both now treat points the same way, at least within the browser window). It has been suggested that one should use ems to allow browsers to increase or decrease the text size. However, I have never had trouble with pixels.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
