Yes, you can hack the "template" that draws the field type, and change the size in there.  It affects all fields of that type though, unless you start hard-coding "if" statements into it.

Thanks Nic for concentrating this issue, but actually i want content based autosize with respect to its height,is it possible?

Possible, yes. How, I'm pretty sure you'd need to inject some javascript to do that. I think you could do that in the template (but I avoid Javascript and have not tried to do that myself, so I'm really not sure)

it make sense thanks..
