Textfield height depending on the length

2005-12-07 02:09

Hi!

I have a textfield, and I want the height of the textfield grows with the length of the string of the field.

I have used the property RelativeToTallestObject and RelativeToBandHeight, but it isn't working.

Can you help me?

Thanks in advance!

Set teh textField property to 'Float' and check 'Stretch with overflow'. This should work for sure.

Is this still the accepted method? It doesn't seem to work for me. I have a rather long varchar column (up to 4096 chars) that is used to store instructions. These instructions can be a simple one line action or a long list of activities. I can't seem to get the textfield to stretch and make the detail section grow properly. I don't want to have this HUGE textfield "just in case" and then have the other information 3 pages further in the report for the 1 line instructions.

 

Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks in advance.
