Adjust Text Area Size

Hi folks,

I continue to build a Confluence form using Confiforms, and I am now having issues adjusting the size of the Text Area box. I am trying to use width:1000px, but it is not working. 

I have tried a comment box, with the same result.

Does anyone know if you can force the width of a Text Area or Comment box?



Davin Studer Community Leader Sep 17, 2020

You may need to do it this way.

width: 1000px !important;

There are some other styles in the AUI framework that might be getting in the way. Specifically these ...

form.aui .aui-select2-container .select2-choices, form.aui .multi-select, form.aui .password, form.aui .select, form.aui .text, form.aui .textarea {
    border: 1px solid #c1c7d0;
    border-radius: 3.01px;
    box-sizing: border-box;
    font-size: inherit;
    margin: 0;
    max-width: 250px;
    vertical-align: baseline;
    width: 100%;

.large-field { max-width: 380px !important; min-width: 250px; width: 250px !important; }

Hey Davin,

Unfortunately, !important; did not may any difference.  Perhaps I am SOL?



If you look at the CSS defined by Atlassian then you will see that there is also a 


attribute defined.

So, you need to set both (width and max-width), when you want to override the width of a field.
