HTML textarea element ¶
The HTML <textarea> element represents a multi-line plain-text editing control, useful when you want to allow users to enter a sizeable amount of free-form text, for example a comment on a review or feedback form.
The HTMLTextAreaElement interface provides special properties and methods for manipulating the layout and presentation of <textarea> elements.
Autogrowing textareas ¶
Three years ago, I shared an approach for creating autoexpanding textarea elements with vanilla JS. On a recent project, I decided to search for a more modern way to automatically expand textarea elements as the user types, and stumbled upon this solution <https://css-tricks.com/the-cleanest-trick-for-autogrowing-textareas/> ( https://css-tricks.com/the-cleanest-trick-for-autogrowing-textareas/ ) from Stephen Shaw that I think is far superior.
